The Anne Laukaitis Champion for Children Award is in honor of Anne’s distinguished Smart Start leadership and her long career dedicated to the service of young children and families in Cabarrus County. The award is given annually to an exceptional individual at the local level who is devoted to public service and whose leadership qualities have resulted in significant change for the betterment of young children, families, and communities.
Children are entering the foster care system without the basic items they need to thrive. While resources are often available for younger children, they aren't for children ages 12+. In response to this need, the Cabarrus Partnership for Children is working to fill up 30 backpacks with supplies that will be given to youth in the foster care system in Cabarrus County.
It's that time of year again! The Cabarrus Partnership for Children is hosting its 15th annual Cuddle up Coat Drive to collect winter coats and warm clothing items for children who are in need in our local community.
This is a community effort to ensure that every child in Cabarrus County is able to stay warm throughout the cold winter months.
The following documents are available for 4 or 5 Star facilities that are applying to become an approved NC Pre-K site for the 2022-2024 contract cycle.
