What We Do

We are community organization created to support dialogue and relationship building between urban youth and families, the police, and other divisions of government, as well as, our community partners. Through the development of camps, trainings, workshops and community events, we strive to engage a diverse group of youth to create stronger neighborhoods and a better city.

HCYC will support the emotional and academic development of youth in kindergarten through 12th-grade who live in the Orchard Trace Community by engaging them in pro-social activities, mentoring, and educational programing. By engaging them in positive activities during what was previously unstructured time, we will help participants build confidence, interpersonal skills and academic successes that will give them a chance for a better life.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

In the wake of the pandemic, Heal Charlotte is taking extra precautions for our youth, volunteers, families and partner’s health and safety by practicing social distancing.

If you know of any families that may be in need, that live in the REAGAN DRIVE CORRIDOR, HIDDEN VALLEY OR UNIVERSITY CITY please have them fill out this COVID-19 assistance form https://forms.gle/AMVndAuyEmLuoegeA
so we all can best serve the community.

We are raising $30,000 to feed 100 kids breakfast and dinner in the Reagan Drive Corridor from the Orchard Trace Community to the Hotels on 85 and Sugar Creek. The money for dinner meals will go to local food trucks who are losing business during these uncertain times. Join us and DONATE today! Just head to our website www.healcharlotte.org and type MEAL in the note box of your donation.

We also have a need for virtual tutors for middle school and elementary school youth. If you are interested, please reach out to onepeaceonemind@gmail.com - thank you!
