About Children’s Hope Alliance

Children’s Hope Alliance is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a long history of child advocacy and welfare dating back over 130 years. Last year, Children’s Hope Alliance helped over 1,800 children and families across North Carolina. Programs and services create hope for hurting children and families in three ways: healing the hurt for those who are troubled, abused or neglected, providing a safe home through foster care and adoption, and encouraging a healthy start through educational, prevention, and developmental programs.

About Rockie Lynne

World-renowned singer-songwriter-entertainer Rockie Lynne first made a name for himself when he was signed to a major label recording contract by Universal Records.  His critically acclaimed albums have received rave reviews from The Associated Press, People Magazine, USA Today, to name a few.

Rockie has appeared nationally on “Good Morning America,”  “Fox and Friends” ABC News and many times on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.

For his entire life Rockie has been a professional musician.  As a child, he spent several months at Barium Springs Home for Children until he was adopted by a family in Statesville. For this reason, Rockie is eager to support Children’s Hope Alliance (formerly Barium Springs Home for Children) in their efforts to support at-risk children in North Carolina.
