Want to help?


Providing families with safe, effective and cost-friendly after-school care is critical to our success and the success of our students. Therefore, we rely on donations to keep enriching the lives of our students! Our students are provided with a hot meal five days per week, an iReady account that they can use to improve math and literacy skills, toiletries to last the months, classroom supplies and qualified and caring teachers to meet their needs. Your donation is especially critical given the dire economic straits that our families have found themselves in-they’re leaning on A Better World now more than ever. Please consider donating today!


  • Right now, with our program operating virtually, we need reading buddy volunteers!
    • Volunteers will meet with a student once per week on Zoom and help them read a book that will be provided to them
    • No technological knowledge is needed-we will train you on everything you need to know!
    • To volunteer, simply email taylor.justice@abetterworldcharlotte.org

Stories From Around A Better World

Thank you to our friends at Apparo, Hylaine and Lowe’s for equipping us with a technology plan, cloud software, laptops and training to help us serve our community efficiently!

Thank you to everybody who joined us on Facebook Live to watch our kids receive their Christmas gifts! Along with New Leaf Foundation and some key individual donors, we were able to provide more than 350 gifts to underserved families in the community!

Thank you to our donors and sponsors for helping us feed over 60 families FULL Thanksgiving meals! Our community members were able to come by our drive-thru November 24th to pick up a frozen turkey and all the sides that they would need for Thanksgiving dinner!

We get to share an exciting and uplifting story with you! The Green family, who attended A Better World last year, were in a pretty tough living situation and found themselves looking for a more permanent home. Our Administration and Fundraising Director, Beyonka Fulton, took it upon herself to get them there. Enlisting her community partners, our board member Carl Fochler, and the resources that A Better World has to offer, Beyonka worked tirelessly to find them a home and Carl took them shopping to outfit the house and get the family a brand new closet of clean clothes and furnishings for their home. A very special thank you goes out today to Beyonka and Carl for their relentless support of our families!
