working to erase the impact of homelessness on children
A CHILD'S PLACE
A Child’s Place works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education. How A Child’s Place Began
A Child’s Place began in 1989 when several women were walking through Settlers Cemetery in Uptown Charlotte and noticed children playing there during school hours. At that time, children were not allowed to enroll in public schools without a permanent address. The women decided to take action and with their support, A Child’s Place was started with 27 homeless children in a room provided by First Presbyterian Church. Around the same time, Congress passed the McKinney-Vento Act (MCV) protecting the educational rights of homeless children, shifting the mission of A Child’s Place to support homeless children enrolled in public school. Since 1989, ACP has transformed into a leading organization and has been working to improve the wellbeing of children and families experiencing homelessness in Charlotte.

KEEPING SENIORS SAFE AMID COVID-19
Protect Seniors Nationwide
Today, the average life expectancy is at a record high of 79 years. As we get older, even the most independent among us may experience physical declines or financial hardship that strips away our independence. Add to that an increase in geographic mobility of our families, and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone.
