The Partnership for Children of Guilford County is working toward a future where every child in Guilford County enters school safe, healthy and ready to succeed.

Through the use of public dollars and private donations, we collaborate with existing community programs and create new ones. These programs measurably strengthen families and improve the lives of children.
