STAND with Children, Families and Child Care!

Thank you for everything you do every day



Your generous support makes all the difference in helping us achieve our goals toward ensuring that every child achieves his or her potential.

 We all know that children, families, childcare programs and schools have struggled immensely with the intense challenges brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic in the past two years.

 Families have had their lives upended by the Pandemic. These disruptions will have
continued effects on children’s development, families’ economic security, and the economy as a whole.

 North Carolina’s childcare providers face precarious financial positions because of
COVID-19, which also threatens parents’ access to affordable, high-quality
care.

 Children and their families have undergone extensive and prolonged stress in the home
and in their early care settings, potentially resulting in long term health,
developmental and mental health concerns. We have already witnessed the
increasing behavioral challenges among young children in classrooms as they
cope with unusual and traumatic events.

 The Good News…

 We Are Building Resilience
for the Future of Children and Families!

They need us to be here for them now.

We can make a bright difference for the future of our
children!
