Strengthening Children, Families & Communities
At Thompson we see lives with tremendous potential all around us. We strive to help make that potential into reality. Children and families struggling with neglect, abuse and hardship require the kind of commitment and compassion that is unique to kind of support we provide.
Unfortunately, not all children get the help or love they deserve, damaging them during their critical formative years. Thompson exists for this very reason - we believe that hope and hard work can heal suffering children. We hope you've found your way here because you share our conviction.
Our work centers on the well-being of children and their families. Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, Thompson is a non-profit organization operating across the Carolinas, each providing comprehensive education, treatment, and care for children (birth to 18 years) in need.
At Thompson, we do whatever it takes to help strengthen children, families, and communities.
