Join Our Cause

A Child’s Place served 2,002 homeless students in 15 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools during the 2018 school year.

Have a positive impact on these students by volunteering as a classroom assistant, lunch buddy, or tutor.

Help boost a child’s academic success, self-esteem, and achieve their goals and dreams.
