I am involved with DEPC and the playgroups with my now 9-month old daughter. We enjoy coming every Tuesday to play with friends along with each other. Her not being in daycare gives her a chance to get outside experience from home!

I am an employee at DEPC, but before I even applied I looked all through the website to see what the partnership was all about because I had never heard of it before. When I got to the page that showed how their work impacts our community, that was it for me. I knew I had to be a part of this awesome organization. At the time (2018) over 13,000 children and their families had benefited from Down East Partnership for Children's services and that number continues to grow. I truly believe that when you can help even one child to grow up to be a healthy, happy lifelong learner, you are making a huge difference because they will grow up to teach their children the same. DEPC is a wonderful place with people who truly care about improving the lives of the children and families right here in our own community and I am thankful to be a part of it. ~B. Lambeth

In my work as a national funder, I share the work of the Down East Partnership on a regular basis and also bring leaders from other states to learn about the great work they are doing. They have done an outstanding job of setting a vision and building the community collaboration to make it happen.

When I think of young children in Nash and Edgecombe counties, I think of DEPC. DEPC continues to have an exceptional reputation not only with collaborating area agencies, but with the families and school systems it serves. DEPC in in our churches, our early care environments and our elementary schools. A questioning parent can find all they need and more inside of its building.

The organization has been very helpful in providing information for the families that we serve. They have also been instrumental in assisting with providing parenting classes as well as assisting with day care payments for the families that we serve. They have also been instrumental in providing Triple P training.

The workshops s are very beneficial they cover topics on reading and healthy eating. DEPC has provided excellent support services to parents and schools . I do not think people realize children are life long learners until they began utilizing services at DEPC.
