The vision of The Children’s Alliance is to provide a voice on behalf of each and every child in Mecklenburg County. We share a common goal to make sure all children in our community received the best opportunity to live a healthy and productive life.

The Children’s Alliance was created in 2002. We are currently a collaborative of 40 diverse non-profit agencies. The Children’s Alliance recognizes the power of working together. One of the goals of the Alliance is to be inclusive. To this end, The Children’s Alliance periodically extends an open invitation to organizations that are concerned about children and families to join this effort. Sharing information and connecting services is how we hope to have the biggest positive impact on the most children of our community.

Keeping Kids out of the Adult Court System: Charlotte Town Hall PDF Print Email

North Carolina is one of two states in the US that automatically treats 16- and 17-year-olds as adults in the court system, despite growing and compelling evidence that this practice is harmful for kids and ineffective for reducing crime. It's time to end this practice and "raise the age" of juvenile jurisdiction.

To raise awareness and garner support from the Charlotte community changing this outdated policy, the Charlotte Children’s Alliance and NC Child are co-hosting a town hall meeting on Thursday, March 30 at 5:30 pm. Our goal is to fill the room with influential people in Charlotte who will lead this effort within their communities to educate and inspire people to call their legislators in support of "Raise the Age."
