The Children’s Alliance of Mecklenburg County is a collaborative of over 40 agencies committed to serving children in our community.  We share a mission to ensure that every child in our county has the best opportunity to live a healthy and productive life.

As a collaborative we are asking our community to join our fight for public education. More than 140,000 children in our county are educated by Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools (CMS) and over 83% of the CMS staff are county residents. Of those 18,000+ employees, 59% make below a living wage.

How Federal Government Shutdown Effects our Families & Children in NC PDF Print Email

Do you wonder what the federal government shutting down means here in NC? Over the weekend I visited family in Virginia where the impacts of the shutdown are pretty visible. I passed a battlefield park that was locked up and closed for business. Friends are furloughed and my brother in law in the Navy Reserves missed his monthly reserve training. Which means no pay…and pretty important to note, in case of federal emergency those Reserve troops aren’t available to be called into action. The commissary where most military families get their groceries is closed.  That is just what I witnessed in a weekend there.
