Alexander Youth Network Impact Video 2018
On Thursday, March 7th, over 500 guests gathered at the Westin Ballroom in Uptown Charlotte to celebrate the kids of Alexander Youth Network and life-changing work of our staff. Craig Bass, our CEO, spoke about the status of children’s mental health in North Carolina. He shared how Alexander is continuing to make a difference for children and families across the state.
Two brave mothers, whose children have benefitted from services at Alexander, spoke about their experience at Alexander. We also released our 2018 Impact Video. Alexander Youth Network Board President, Chuck Price, and Foundation President, Lynn Crutchfield, recapped the tremendous impact that our donors and volunteers make in supporting the children at Alexander.
Through the generous financial support of the attendees and our donors, we are proud to announce that we raised $747,000 of unrestricted dollars.
These dollars will allow us to continue to serve more than 10,000 children and families in North Carolina.
The Cost to Treat a Child at Alexander:
$500 per day
$3,400 per week
$81,000 per year
What Your Dollars Do
$25,000 per year for 5 years = certified teacher salary at one of our day treatment facilities for 5 years
$10,000 per year for 5 years = offsets the cost of 5 months of Psychiatric Residential Treatment at our Charlotte campus
$1,000 per year for 5 years = subsidizes 5 months of outpatient treatment for ONE child
