What We Do
A Child's Place programs focus on supporting families with children in schools and neighborhoods left out of the economic prosperity of our city, often marked by segregation, poverty, and high rates of eviction and foreclosure. ACP deploys a team of specialists into schools and the community to work with the unique challenges of family homelessness. On-going case-management through individualized student plans aims to maintain attendance, healthy behaviors, and staying up-to-date on coursework.
Each unique service at ACP addresses complex challenges of homelessness to build a community where children have access to housing, engage in healthy supportive relationships, and succeed in school. ACP’s ongoing strategy is to create systemic change within Mecklenburg County by serving as a voice and advocate for homeless students.
COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
100% of the children and families served by our A Child's Place program serves 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.
We have three specific #GivingTuesdayNow asks that center on continuing to provide support for the vulnerable children and families we serve as the stay-at-home orders lift and we move forward in a new normal.
