Behavioral Health Urgent Care Now Open

The Hope Center for Youth and Family Crisis

Young people experiencing a psychiatric crisis often have nowhere to go for care except a hospital emergency room – which can be both costly and limited in its offerings of specialized care.

Located in the heart of Fuquay-Varina, KidsPeace, in partnership with Alliance Health, is bringing the first Behavioral Health Urgent Care (BHUC)/Facility Based Crisis (FBC) Center to Wake County.

The Hope Center for Youth and Family Crisis offers programming that is specifically designed to provide assessment and treatment for mental and behavioral health concerns, allowing for an immediate response to the child’s crisis. 

The Hope Center will provide 24/7/365 access to assessment, stabilization and treatment planning in a staff-secure and therapeutic environment, as well as mobile response to behavioral health crisis throughout the central North Carolina region.

The Hope Center is NOW HIRING for mental health professionals to join its programs!  Click here to see all the opportunities available in the Wake County/Central North Carolina region! 

Programs Of The Hope Center

The service will be based at The Hope Center for Youth and Family Crisis facility. 
400 West Ransom Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC. (877) 888-7849

Mobile Outreach Response Engagement Stabilization


MORES (Mobile Outreach Response Engagement Stabilization)

The Hope Center’s Mobile Outreach Response Engagement Stabilization (MORES) service is available now for youth ages 3-20 in Wake, Johnston, Orange and Durham Counties, 24 hours/7 days a week. The MORES service is a specialized crisis response service designed to engage youth and their families, to address immediate crisis, and assist in connection to community resources and providers to aid in the reduction of hospitalizations and out of home placements. Given that a child in crisis is already experiencing trauma, this service allows professionals to stabilize the crisis without adding additional trauma from police presence, unless needed. The team will be dispatched once the parent/caregiver contacts KidsPeace (484-215-6756) during the time of crisis.

Behavioral Health Urgent Care


Behavioral Health Urgent Care (BHUC) is a service inspired by the familiar “urgent care” model for medical care, but for individuals experiencing a behavioral health crisis.  It’s offered as an alternative to a community hospital’s Emergency Department, with a program specifically designed to address crisis due to a substance use disorder, mental health disorder, and/or I/DD diagnosis or any combination in individuals from 5 to 20 years of age. 

The service will be based at The Hope Center for Youth and Family Crisis facility at 400 West Ransom Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC. (877) 888-7849 or (610) 799-7500

Facility-Based Crisis


The Hope Center’s Facility-Based Crisis program will feature a 16-bed staff-secure service, providing 24/7 inpatient therapeutic programming for children from 6 to 17 years of age.  Like BHUC, the FBC service is designed to meet the needs of families whose loved ones are experiencing a behavioral health crisis, and will provide an immediate response to these situations without the need to engage emergency departments, which can be costly and limited in their programmatic scope for mental and behavioral health issues. 

The service will be based at The Hope Center for Youth and Family Crisis facility at 400 West Ransom Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC. (877) 888-7849 or (610) 799-7500

Staff were very helpful and professional. Everything was done in the best interest of my nephew.


Really pleased with the help we received. We never went through this before.


Given the situation, it was a very positive experience. Everyone was attentive and helpful, and my child received the care he needed. It is a blessing and relief to know that this service is available when needed to help your own child.


Staff was so kind and compassionate and diligent in getting a doctor appointment set up ASAP.
