We are thrilled that we celebrate our 10th year of existence in 2012. An idea born at the 2002 Children’s Summit has grown to over 40 agencies working together to find common ground on issues pertaining to the children and vulnerable families in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg County. In 2012 we are focusing our energy on two initiatives: Childhood Obesity and The Raise the Age for Youth Accused of Minor Offenses Bill (HB632/SB506) (RTA) under consideration in both the NC House and Senate.

In 10 years we focused on the belief that every child in our community deserves to grow up safe, healthy and happy: We are committed to do even more until this dream is realized.
