What We Do
Since 1902 our mission at Children's Home Society of NC has been to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family. Through educational programs and family preservation, we strive first and foremost to keep families together and healthy. When that is not possible, we help provide children with healthy family settings through foster care and adoption. In 2018, CHS served 18,453 individuals through prevention, foster care to permanency, and post-permanency services, including family training and education, clinical services, and professional training to children, parents, and professionals.
Interesting Info
  • 203 children rang in 2019 as members of their new adoptive families.
  • Last year CHS kept more than 700 children out of the foster car system through family preservation services.
  • Working to incorporate our Wise Guys male responsibility program within all Charlotte-Meck schools.
