Day Five: Staying at Home with CHS

Transforming Lives and Communities During Difficult Times 

Even though much of the world is on pause, Children’s Home Society of NC’s mission to provide children and families across North Carolina with support and resources never stops. The power of family transforms lives and communities even during the most difficult times.

Since our founding in 1902, Children’s Home Society of NC (CHS) has placed more than 16,000 children with nurturing adoptive families through our mission to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family. CHS found forever families for 214 children through adoption last year, and more than 550 children are currently in the care of CHS foster families across the state. We continue in our commitment to ensuring that the children of North Carolina have permanent, safe, and loving families.

Staying at Home with Children’s Home Society of NC: Storytelling Through Different Perspectives, is a week-long virtual fundraising effort, concluding with two special live events tomorrow, created to allow us to share the stories of families and children and the need we are faced with in continuing this vital work.
