What We Do

In an effort to erase the impact of homelessness on academic performance, A Child’s Place provides immediate, emergency services and referrals to children and their families in the midst of crisis. All children are at risk of failure but those experiencing the chaos of homelessness are at the greatest risk of falling behind in school. We stand by families as they progress from crisis to safer housing situations - all the while keeping the student focused on academics and learning.

Interesting Info

There are over 4,191 identified homeless children attending Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
A Child's Place assisted over 2,100 students experiencing homelessness during the 2017-2018 school year.
