Carolina's Creative Counseling is honored to be involved with several local community resources. We are happy to give our time, energy and resources to organizations and businesses like these who help build healthy families.
Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.
Girl Talk Foundation, Inc. empowers today's girls to become leaders of tomorrow. The Tailoring Teens for Success curriculum is an 11-week character bulding program.

Council For Children's Rights fulfills its mission by working on issues important to children today and tomorrow. For children who have an immediate need or crisis, the Council intervenes on behalf of children via three teams: Children’s Defense Team, Custody Advocacy Program, and the Individual Advocacy Team. They provide attorneys, advocates and staff to protect the rights and interests of children who find themselves in need of a voice. They also connect children and their families with agencies and institutions that help them thrive.
Charlotte Family Housing (CFH) is an innovative solution for family homelessness in the greater Charlotte community. In its two-phase continuum of care model, CFH provides supportive transitional shelter and affordable housing for its families. During both phases, the families work closely with social workers to receive intensive family-focused care and support such as vocational counseling, parenting skills and financial literacy. CFH empowers families to take positive steps in both phases to achieve financial independence and self-reliance.
Loaves and Fishes provides a week's worth of nutritious groceries to individuals and families in a short-term crisis. In 2011, Loaves & Fishes provided groceries to 114,177 people. Loaves & Fishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nondenominational organization, founded and operated by local religious congregations and community organizations. It grew out of an effort in 1975 at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church to respond to the growing hunger problem in Mecklenburg County North Carolina and continues to expand to meet that need.
Pat's Place, incorporated in 2004, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation and is one of just over 700 centers nationwide and 22 centers in North Carolina accredited by the National Children's Alliance. Since inception, Pat's Place has assisted over 2,000 children affected by sexual abuse throughout Mecklenburg County. Carolina's Creative Counseling accepts referral's from Pat's Place, specifically those children whom may benefit from TF-CBT (Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) services.
Charlotte Mecklenburg School Based Mental Health Provider
Approximately twenty-percent of all children and adolescents present with behavioral and emotional difficulties (Blau, Huang, & Mallery, 2010) but only one-third of children in need of mental health support actually receive services (US Public Health Service, 2000). The Surgeon General and IDEA regulations have identified school as the ideal location for children to receive mental health support, and in fact it is where seventy-percent of students in need receive some type of mental health support (Kutush, Duchnowski, & Green, 2011). For students whose significant mental health needs affect learning or school attendance, the availability of evidence-based mental health services is critical to improving their emotional well-being (Kutush, Duchnowski, & Green, 2011) and enhancing their ability to access and benefit from instruction (Paz Guzman, Jellinek, George, & Marcela, 2011).
