NC Child is currently focused on the following advocacy efforts:
Protecting Children’s Health–NC Child is focused on protecting decades of progress in children’s health insurance coverage that has resulted in only 4% of children lacking insurance statewide.
Building Economic Opportunity–The future of North Carolina is as strong as its people. That’s why we’re at our best when all children to grow up in financially secure families and communities where they have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Children living in financially secure families and communities are more likely to succeed in school, stay healthy, and achieve economic success as adults.
NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading–Our vision is bold – all North Carolina children, regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, are reading on grade-level by the end of third grade, so that they have the greatest opportunity for life success. Achieving it will take long-term commitment.
