What We Do
Families Forward Charlotte aims to ease the burden of poverty on children and their families in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. We match struggling, low income families with volunteer mentors (we call them family liaisons) which work with the family to help them goal set and find resources they need to achieve those goals. We also provide the families in our program with essentials to their safety and success (toiletries, cleaning supplies, home goods, and limited financial support) as well as offering educational programs.. The organization’s goal is to establish long-term stability for the children and families we serve by building relationships across socio-economic lines in our city - we will be the social capital that is greatly missing in their lives.
