At Thompson, we do whatever it takes to help strengthen children, families, and communities. Our work centers on the well-being of children and their families. Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, Thompson is a non-profit organization operating across the Carolinas, each providing comprehensive education, treatment, and care for children (birth to 18 years) in need.
Our mission: Thompson is called to serve children and families through healing, teaching, worship, and play.
Our vision: Thompson will lead children and families into independent and rewarding lives.
Our work is largely funded by individual and corporate donors. We need your help to grow our work across the Carolinas.
