THE STORY:

A Child’s Place (ACP) works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education.

Stability and education are the keys to solving the homeless problem here in Charlotte. The relationship between education and income well-documented. Those with more education make more money. For every year a child progresses through school, the likelihood of being poor and homeless as an adult decreases.

We can pay now or pay later. It currently costs ACP $817 per year to serve a client homeless child. Compare that to the more than $60,000 per year it costs us for a child to be in our juvenile justice system or the nearly $40,000 per year it costs taxpayers to incarcerate or provide substance abuse treatment for an adult or government. Helping homeless children now not only fulfills their hopes and dreams; it creates better citizens and employees for our community.
