Community Leadership Council

Our Community Leadership Councils in Charlotte, Forsyth, Guilford, and Raleigh work across the state to advance our organization.


The purpose of the Community Leadership Council is to advance the mission, vision and programs of Children’s Home Society by building connections within the community.


The mission of Children’s Home Society is to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe and loving family.


The Community Leadership Council provides an opportunity for local volunteer leadership to advance the work of the organization in these ways:

  1. Represent the organization in the community as an ambassador, seeking opportunities to build relationships that help advance the organization’s mission.
  2. Engage in fundraising opportunities that support the work of the organization.
  3. Provide advice about local needs and opportunities to ensure the work of the organization is well informed, relevant, and ultimately valuable to the community.
  4. Demonstrate support through a financial gift at a level that is significant to you.

The Community Leadership Council is not a governing board and is not responsible for policy and governance oversight.

We have four Community Leadership Councils supporting the state of North Carolina. Charlotte, Forsyth, Guilford, and Raleigh.
