A Child’s Place works to erase the impact of homelessness o children and their education. With no permanent residence, homeless children often stop going to school — the one place that should provide structure in a life of transition. Without the influence and stability of a classroom environment, these children lose more than a chance to learn. They also lose the crucial sense of belonging gained from interacting with friends and other students. But there is hope for these children — and help — through A Child’s Place. Founded in 1989, A Child’s Place is a collaborative effort between the Charlotte, NC community and Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS).
