Celebrating 20 Years of Community Partnerships
In 1998, the Cabarrus County Partnership for Children was formed with one goal in mind: Preparing our youngest children in Cabarrus County to be ready for kindergarten.
Over the last 20 years, we have worked to fulfill that goal through the development and enhancement of a network of quality services focusing on health, family support, and quality early education. Today, we continue to be a collaborative organization with the mission to Connect Purpose, People and Programs to Ensure Child Well Being in Cabarrus County for children birth - 5 years of age.
In celebration of our 20th anniversary, we invite you to join us for the following events and initiatives.
20th Anniversary Events and InitiativeS
Help us expand the reach of our family programs in Cabarrus County so every child in our community can have the best start at life. The goal of our $20 for 20 Campaign is to raise $20,000 to support our family programs: Parents As Teachers, Project Baby Reach, Celebrating Families!, and Circle of Parents. These programs provide vital resources, support groups and education for families with children aged 0-5. Your contributions will help us provide additional support groups and resources to families who need it most.
