Living on the Edge

“When we fail to provide children with what they need to build a strong foundation for healthy and productive lives, we put our future prosperity and security at risk.”
Dr. Jack Shonkoff, a pediatrician and founding director of Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child

Unfortunately, that foundation is being compromised in North Carolina. The number of young children in our counties is growing each year. Yet, the services to ensure their healthy development and growth are being cut each year. Closing this gap is critical for our future economic prosperity and a more immediate economic recovery.

A new fact sheet shows how North Carolina is stepping back from its investment in early childhood. Budget cuts are hurting our economy, our families, and our children.
