Durham’s Partnership for Children has been around for 25 Years! Can you believe it? In honor of our 25th Anniversary we want to know…“How well you know the Partnership?”. Durham’s Partnership for Children was established in 1994, although many things about the organization may have changed over the years, one thing has remained constant and that is our passion for ensuring school readiness and success at an early age. We have continued to seek funding opportunities and collaborative approaches that support our work in innovative ways. While also sharing and providing resources with the community all for the benefit of creating a solid foundation for the future of our children. If you have been with us for a while, you have seen the transition of programs like “More at 4” morphed into what is now known as our NC PreK Program. Chances are if you have been to a Transition to Kindergarten event, received Dolly Parton Imagination Library books in the mail, or been a part of our other Community Initiatives then you have in some way been touched by our many programs and services. Needless to say, we are grateful to have served the community thus far and we are looking forward to many more years of Partnering with the Durham community. We Thank the families of Durham County for allowing us the chance to grow with them.
Our work is made possible through the efforts of our many Staff, Board Members and Community Partners for having the same passion and vision for the future of our children.

Question of the Week
Question: If I am unable to pick-up school meals from Durham Public Schools, can I have them delivered to my house?
Answer: EAT NC has organized volunteers to deliver school meals from DPS to families who are unable to pick-up the meals from one of the meal sites. Families will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis and must complete the “School Meal Delivery” form on the EAT NC website. Durham Public Schools will have these meals available to all families in Durham through December 31st, 2020. To learn more and to complete the form, visit https://www.eatnorthcarolina.org/dpsschoolmeals. If you complete a form and do not hear back from EAT NC, you may have provided inaccurate contact information and would need to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure every child in Durham enters school ready to succeed, we lead community strategies for children birth to age 5 and their families that promote healthy development and learning and enhance access to high-quality care.
