We use Smart Start dollars and private donations to drive positive outcomes for children and families in Pitt and Martin Counties. We choose programs based on the community’s unique needs, and make sure each uses established procedures to ensure the highest possible return from every dollar invested.
By doing this, we are improving the health for young children, stronger families and higher-quality early childhood care and education programs in our area.
Each Dollar We Invest Yields Big Results
Each program goes through a thorough process to make the most of every dollar invested. Organizations receiving funding complete an annual application process, follow evidence-based and evidence-informed guidelines and submit quarterly reports to show progress toward annual goals.
Making A Difference Together
The organizations we partner with in the community all work towards unique missions. By combining our resources and working together, we are able to make a difference in the lives of those around us.
