Who We Are
Thompson at a
Thompson strengthens children, families, and communities through healing, teaching, worship, and play.
Thompson is a leading provider of clinical and prevention services for children and families across the Carolinas. The Charlotte, NC-based, nationally accredited nonprofit agency empowers children and families through therapy, education and prevention-based care. Thompson has five locations specializing in clinical and behavioral treatment, developmental education and proactive care.
Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, Thompson has since grown into a non-profit organization operating across the Carolinas, each location providing comprehensive education, treatment, and care for children (birth to 18 years) in need. Today, around 1 in 5 adolescents have a diagnosable mental health disorder. At our most intensive level, we heal children who have been severely abused and provide them with the support and services they need until they are secure in a stable and loving home. Our goal is to create a stable foundation on which children and families can learn to thrive for a lifetime.
