Class of 2020

Thompson Child & Family Focus has collaborated with the national nonprofit Friends of the Children to launch this program locally. The program provides Charlotte’s most vulnerable children with a long-term, salaried professional mentor, called a friend. This professional mentor is engaged for twelve and a half years no matter what. The program gives youth facing the greatest need, the ability to create a new story.
