welcomeWe provide services for local families and children through Smart Start, North Carolina's award-winning early childhood initiative. We serve as a leading advocate and collaborative resource to provide access to high quality services for young children.

The Partnership for Children of Lincoln & Gaston Counties works to:

  • Assure that high quality child care is available for families in our service area.
  • Expand literacy throughout the community with programs that assist parents in developing habits of daily reading with their children, and assist children in discovering an early love of reading.
  • Promote child health by working with providers, health departments, families, and communities to improve the health and safety for young children.
  • Ensure that parents and families are supported and strengthened in their role as their children's primary caregivers.
  • Build networks through collaboration with local programs that target families of young children in Lincoln and Gaston counties.

The Partnership for Children of Lincoln & Gaston Counties:

  • Administers North Carolina's Smart Start funds for programs that benefit children ages 0-5 years and their families.
  • Is a catalyst for bringing different groups together for the sake of children.
