Tara Spil

Regional Director of Philanthropy Children's Home Society of NC

“From Foster Care to Forever Homes”

Tara Spil, Regional Director of Philanthropy for CHS in the Charlotte region, and Tony Bucci, CHS Board Member will speak to the South Charlotte Rotary Group April 4. Their goal is to raise awareness for the variety of programs and services Children’s Home Society provides to serve children and families in our community.

Children’s Home Society has been meeting the complex needs of North Carolina children and families for 115 years by providing a broad spectrum of programs and services. While best known for our adoption services, CHS also provides post adoption services, foster care, parenting education, family preservation, teen pregnancy prevention and family finding services. Last year, CHS served 21,000 children and families across the state of North Carolina.

To promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family.

To be a leader in transforming families and communities so all children can thrive.
