Foster Village Charlotte

Foster Village Charlotte provides community support for foster families and the vulnerable children they care for. Our goal is to show families who care for foster children that they are not in this journey alone. We provide tangible items for first time placements and offer support by connecting the families to the resources that are available in the community.

NC-CURE

We advocate for those individuals incarcerated in our prisons. We speak out for those without a voice by raising public awareness to the issues that adversely impact people incarcerated, their families and public safety. We identify serious problems people incarcerated face and bring them to the forefront of our policymakers for effective reform. We advocate for restorative rehabilitation to prevent the cycle of crime and recidivism.

Rites of Passage Council

The Rites Of Passage Council is a non profit organization dedicated to supporting personal growth and professional development, providing core training in eco-psychology, ritual process healing, ceremonial initiation, teaching leadership skills, and supporting the creation of sustainable and environmentally responsible communities.

Our primary objective is to help veterans who have fallen through the cracks and have not been able to navigate the complexity of the educational and funding system.
