OUR PARTNERS




We could not do it without you!


RMFY believes that systemic change for a community is developed through collaboration, community conversations, and thoughtful execution. With that said, community partnerships are vital, and RMFY actively looks for opportunities to partner with organizations to provide quality programming and support services to the youth of our community.

With a strategic focus on social and emotional learning for students, CMS provides RMFY with the opportunity to serve students in an effort to increase student support and accountability. The administrators, teachers, counselors and resource officers are invaluable members of the RMFY team.

RMFY became a partner agency with United Way of Central Carolinas in 2001. We are grateful to be a part of UWCC’s initiatives around collective impact and economic opportunity for the uplift of Mecklenburg County. We also participate in numerous United Way fairs to share our students’ stories of success and the impact we are having on youth in our community.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department
Along with being co-founded by CMPD Sgt. Dave Scheppegrell (retired), RMFY is proud of the continued support we receive from local law enforcement to change the lives of the youth we serve! RMFY is in line with the goals of the Youth Engagement Unit of CMPD to provide a continuum of program opportunities for youth and young adults who are at risk of or involved in delinquent or criminal activity. These opportunities are designed to increase program opportunities for youth and reduce the number of youth referred to the criminal justice system, delinquent or criminal activity by youth, and delinquent or criminal recidivism by youth.
The commitment of CMPD to our youth has had a profound impact on the lives of the more than 30,000 students served through RMFY.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office
RMFY’s impact is rooted in the support we receive from local law enforcement. This includes the strong partnership we have with MCSO. The Sheriff’s Office has representation on our Board of Directors, and supports our efforts in helping youth turn obstacles into opportunities. Deputies also work with RMFY Program Specialists during the weekly group meetings.
It should also be noted that MCSO is a force to be reckoned with during the Twilight 5K as their teams come out in droves to support the mission. In fact, their teams average more than 500 runners every year! We appreciate and applaud their commitment to our youth and to moving the City of Charlotte forward.

Bragg Financial Advisors
The Charlotte Observer described Bragg Financial Advisors as a “small company with a big heart.” That’s because BFA is committed to improving our community.

Mr. Bragg continues to be a valued supporter and has inspired his sons, John, Benton, and Phillips, and son-in-law, Steve Scruggs to support the RMFY mission.

Aaron Feinberg, President and CEO of Textum Weaving, Inc., serves as a prime example of someone who talks the talk and walks the walk.
