Martin-Pitt Partnership for Children brings together all the people involved families, teachers, doctors, childcare professionals, caregivers, social workers, and community partners – to ensure children have all they need for healthy growth and development.

We are a nonprofit organization that serves the birth to five population and their families. Founded in 1998, the Martin/Pitt Partnership for Children is one of 79 Smart Start partnerships in our state. MPPFC works to support parents, child care facilities, and educators through collaborative programs. The key to Smart Start’s success is the ability to leverage state, federal, and private resources in order to provide broad, direct services to children and families in Martin and Pitt Counties.

Our goal is to provide every child in Martin and Pitt Counties between the ages of birth to five the opportunity to experience a quality early childhood education. Incredible brain development occurs during the first five years of life and the Partnership funds programs that cater to this age group and their families. Your support helps us help families capitalize on early childhood experiences that build the foundation for learning.

It takes a village to raise a child.

Incredible brain development occurs during the first five years of life, and early childhood experiences literally build the foundation for future learning. This year, the Partnership is beginning a new tradition in our dedication to providing all types of exciting experiences to the children and families in our community.

Our inaugural Touch A Truck event will be held October 8, 2016, and the proceeds will be used to help MPPfC continue to reach our goals within our local communities. Touch A Truck gives the children in our community the opportunity to get up close and personal with the giant trucks, cars, boats, and rigs they love, while teaching them how these machines and operators make daily life possible.

Our goal is to offer our children the opportunity to climb, touch, and ask questions, and to instill in them that sense of wonder and appreciation for community that lasts into adulthood. We want to celebrate the machines and people who work hard in our community — but we need your help.

We need community businesses and organizations to step up as sponsors; we need businesses with big rigs, boats, trucks, cars, and anything else exciting to join us as exhibitors; and we need volunteers to help tie everything together and ensure a fun, safe, and educational time is had by all.

You can find all of our forms below. Please share them with your friends, family, neighbors, church, and more so that we can make this event a success.

For more information or to register as a volunteer, please contact Community Outreach Director Amanda Parmelee at 252.758.8885 or via email at aparmelee@mppfc.org.

The Martin-Pitt Partnership for Children funds programs in early literacy, quality early child care and learning, assistance finding child care services, parent and family support, and health care during the first 2,000 days of a child’s life — the time from birth until they arrive for their first day of Kindergarten. Ninety percent of a child’s brain growth occurs in that time period — we have 2,000 days to get it right.
