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.

Interesting Info

There are over 4,191 identified homeless children attending Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
Students experiencing homelessness are hungry 2x as often as other children.
Students experiencing homelessness are 2-3 grade levels behind and 2x as likely to repeat a grade.
