Our History

Prior to 2002 a group of organizations committed to the well-being of children and families in Charlotte/Mecklenburg County began working together on a number of shared issues and concerns. Together these organizations informally collaborated on various projects in the community, primarily focused on a specific goal or outcome.


In 2002, these organizations decided to form a collaborative – now called The Children’s Alliance – with the purpose of working on identified projects as well as create a forum for new collaborative to emerge.


The group shares information and resources to make sure every child has access to available resources.


2022 marks The Children's Alliance our 20th year. For 20 years our organization has committed to the well-being of children and families in Mecklenburg County.
