Child Advocacy Network

Building Local Power

To give more children a great start in life, we need a strong network of advocates across North Carolina. That’s why NC Child is building multi-issue, multi-racial local “hubs” across the state. CAN hubs lift up the voices of local advocates and create a statewide network of strong voices for children.

CAN hubs are underway in Goldsboro (Wayne CAN), Asheville (Western NC CAN), Wilmington (New Hanover CAN), and Greensboro (Guilford CAN), with plans for more.

NC Child provides a modest yearly grant to a cornerstone organization in each CAN hub. CAN hubs receive ongoing training and technical support, and up-to-the-minute information and data about state and federal child policy and opportunities to engage.
