We Are For Children, Youth, and Families

Healthy Families = Healthier Children/Youth

The NC Collaborative advocates with legislators and other stakeholders by educating them about key priority issues affecting outcomes for children, youth, and families in North Carolina. The Collaborative includes the lived experience of youth and families. We hope to raise our voices collectively to impact current issues.

The NC Collaborative Research & Policy Workgroup was formed in early 2019 to stay abreast of state policy development and ensure an opportunity for Family and Youth voice to be heard on identified issues/policies. The group will also assist in the development of white papers from the NC Collaborative, and provide resources and updates to NC Collaborative members, State Partners and local communities.
