United Way is moving!

 

In early January 2020, United Way of Central Carolinas will settle into its new space at the Children and Family Services Center, at 601 East 5th Street in Charlotte.

 

Created by nine Charlotte nonprofit agencies serving children and families, the Children and Family Services Center opened in 2003 through a public-private partnership with the City of Charlotte. The building is home to several partner agencies and will allow for more collaboration as United Way works to improve economic mobility through its nonprofit network.

 

“This is truly an ideal real estate solution for United Way,” said Laura Clark, United Way of Central Carolinas president and CEO. “We are energized by the opportunity to work alongside this committed group of agencies, and we look forward to driving lasting change from our new home at the Children and Family Services Center through even deeper network collaboration and efficiencies.”

 

One of the area’s largest private funders of health and human services, United Way shifted its community impact strategy in 2018 to more directly address the lack of economic mobility and has adopted more sustainable practices to ensure its long-term financial health. This relocation is the latest step in that strategy.

 

More than a building, the Children and Family Services Center offers 100,000 square feet of office, meeting spaces and shared administrative services which allow collaborating agencies to maximize resources, reduce costs and redirect savings to support and expand programs.

 

“We and our 11 partner agencies are truly excited about the additional synergies that will result from United Way of Central Carolinas joining our collaboration,” said Shelley White, executive director of the Children and Family Services Center. “Their participation as a partner agency will enhance our ability to achieve our mission of improving the lives of children and families through an innovative partnership of community resources that promotes strong families and advocate for change.”
