Imagine living in a community where all families feel safe and secure.
Imagine a healthy, productive, and sustainable community.
Family Services is working to make what you imagine a reality. We are committed to achieve two transformational goals for Forsyth County:
- To provide all young children with the opportunity to enroll in quality, affordable early childhood development programs, and
- To create a community in which all families and children are free from the threat of family violence.
We have convened key leaders to work together to achieve these two goals, and have two initiatives currently underway:
Universal Pre-K Initiative
At-risk children who participate in high-quality pre-kindergarten programs are more successful in school and later in life. They are more likely to graduate from high school, attend a four-year college, and graduate from college. As adults they are more likely to be employed, own a home, and have health insurance. But less than 25 percent of four-year-olds in Forsyth County are enrolled in quality pre-K programs.
Our Universal Pre-K Initiative is dedicated to making Forsyth County the first county in North Carolina with a system of quality pre-K programs that are available to all children.
