Tens of thousands of North Carolina parents who care for children with special needs have no health coverage themselves. Join us in calling on state legislators to expand Medicaid to ensure that every parent & caregiver has the health coverage they need.
Your donation puts NC Child’s strategies to work for children and families across the state.
Many children across our state face significant barriers that affect their wellbeing. Too many kids and families face discrimination because of their race, ethnicity, and place of birth. NC Child wants every child to have the chance to thrive.
Here are a few of the current campaigns we’re working on, together with our partners:
Since the pandemic began, hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians have lost their jobs – and health insurance. It’s time for state leaders to act.
Some NC kids have unacceptable levels of lead in their bodies, putting them at risk. Eliminating exposure to lead means healthier brain development.
North Carolina can’t go back to work without child care. Access to strong early childhood programs is critical for child development, & for NC’s working families.
Children’s healthy social-emotional development is tied to their ability to learn, maintain healthy relationships with their family and peers, and succeed later in life.
