What We Do
A Child's Place is a specialized, intensive case management service for families and children experiencing homelessness, focusing on three key priorities: access to resources, engage in healthy and supportive relationships, and increase self-sufficiency. Our ACP social workers will work with families of children of any grade – identified as McKinney-Vento (homeless) by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS). Year over year, CMS has enrolments of over 4,000 students experiencing homelessness. The ACP social workers work with the families to identify goals and chart a path to reach them. COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: 100% of the children and families served by our A Child's Place program live under the federal poverty level. School, service and retails closings are having an exponential impact on the most vulnerable people in our community – homeless children and their families.
