Children’s Home Society of North Carolina

Children’s Home Society of NC believes that strong families have the power to transform communities. It is this strong foundational belief that led CHS’s leadership to adopt a high growth strategic plan.


  • Increased levels of accountability amongst leadership, driven by a move from traditional hierarchical to more distributed ownership and decision-making
  • Reallocation of responsibilities to align like functions and leverage expertise, best practices, and tools and techniques 
  • Creation of two additional executive level roles over technology and marketing to address functional gaps


Armstrong McGuire assessed CHS’s strengths, challenges, and opportunities and conducted a functional analysis of CHS’s leadership and management teams’ role descriptions and actual work responsibilities. Based on the analysis combined with research of similar statewide agencies, we recommended adjustments to CHS’s organizational structure and team responsibilities, including the creation of two new executive level positions.

Our expertise in these fields led us to success.


Implementing the proposed recommendations, CHS created a new top-level leadership structure with C-level accountability, realigned responsibilities and reporting relationships, and engaged Armstrong McGuire to lead searches for executive level roles.

“Armstrong McGuire has been a trusted partner for many years, so when we needed to assess our organizational structure to support our strategic plan, we knew where to turn. Their support helped position us for success with an ambitious growth plan. I have always found the AM team to be talented, strategic, and just overall great people to work with and valued partners.”
