Community Partners Need to Band Together to Comfort Youth in Crisis (video)
Childhood trauma is a crisis in our nation and it’s adversely impacting children regardless of the Zip Code in which they live. Thompson Child & Family Focus helps meet the needs of Charlotte’s most vulnerable children and youth with its work with Turning Point Academy (TPA).
After one year in partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), the organization has seen transformative results for students at the school. Will Jones, president of Thompson, provides insight into this issue and how the community can partner with Thompson and become change agents for Charlotte’s children.
Thompson is a nationally accredited nonprofit agency, proving clinical and prevention services for children and families across Mecklenburg County. Thompson continues its strategic growth, shifting its work, forging new partnerships, to meet the everchanging needs of our community.
