Partnership for Children of the Foothills – making a difference

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, June 3, 2014

The partnership helps build many successes for children, families and educators in Polk, Rutherford and McDowell Counties. Each of our funded programs works toward achieving our shared goal of building a strong foundation for our children’s learning and development.
The investment in our three-county region has strengthened families, the early education system and our communities. Annually, the Partnership for Children of the Foothills invests more than $2.1 million into our local economy by supporting 14 programs in 10 local agencies and organizations.
Investing in early learning has a profound impact on our children and community. The broader societal impact is so significant that military leaders, business executives and law enforcement officers are calling on greater investments to ensure our national security, our global competitive edge and our safety.
High quality early education yields: higher graduation rates, reduced crime, higher earnings, less reliance on social services and better jobs.
