Be A Champion for Children!
The Region A Partnership for Children invites you to invest in the future of North Carolina’s children. Be a Champion!
Join our Annual Campaign 2015-2016 and get involved today. Your contribution will help to build a sustainable foundation for our early childhood system in western North Carolina. Every dollar that you contribute to this annual campaign will be used to directly support Smart Start programs in your western North Carolina community.
“Invest in our children’s future today!”
Smart Start is the North Carolina Early Education Initiative to ensure that all children are healthy and ready to succeed when they enter kindergarten. The NC General Assembly issued guidelines for Smart Start grant funding. The funders must serve children under six, before they enter kindergarten, in the areas of early care and education, family support, and health.
Visit our Smart Start Page for more information.
The Region A Partnership for Children is the non-profit organization that was established in 1994 to administer Smart Start funding in the seven far western counties (Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, and Swain) and the Cherokee Indian Reservation (Qualla Boundary).
