​​​​About Us

The Columbus County Partnership for Children...
is a catalyst for bringing various community groups together for the sake of the children in Columbus County.

The Partnership administers Smart Start funds appropriated from the state legislature to support local programs to benefit children age birth to 5 and their families living in Columbus County.

CCPC also brings about awareness of the critical needs of young children and helps to develop solutions that address the needs.


Our Vision

The Columbus County Partnership for Children...
seeks to provide the options and resources necessary for children and their families to lead healthy, happy and productive lives.

We seek to:

  • Emphasize and respect the family's primary responsibility for their children;
  • Support families in raising their children;
  • Promote family-friendly workplaces;
  • Provide a variety of high-quality, early childhood opportunities for families and their children;
  • Ensure healthy children and wholesome childhoods;
  • Provide surroundings that are safe, healthy, nurturing;
  • Protect all children from abuse, neglect, and other violence;
  • Foster expectations, generate hope and encourage aspirations
