Partner Agency Benefits
The Children & Family Services Center, a five-story office building in uptown Charlotte, was built in 2003 through a public/private collaboration. The Center provides shared space, technology, finance and HR services to its non-profit partner agencies at below market rates. This innovative partnership of community resources enables these agencies to work together to improve the lives of children and families in our community.
The non-profit agencies that share space in the Children & Family Services Center serve more than 198,600 children and families annually in Mecklenburg County and across the state. In the last decade, the Center has become the hub of non-profit activity in Charlotte and a national model for public-private partnerships and multi-agency cooperation.
At a building level, the agencies share conference, training, kitchen and board facilities. An enterprise-class computer system and a common telephone system are managed by a shared chief information officer. The agencies’ shared services have expanded to include financial management and accounting by a single chief financial officer and employment and benefits services provided by a shared human resources director.
