The Chatham County Partnership for Children is a group of individuals that works very diligently to improve the services that our children receive. I am very honored to be a part of this fine organization that puts children at the highest priority possible. Without this organization and their fine staff many of our children would not receive the services needed to be successful in the future.

The partnerhship is a crucial part of our community. It provides support to several organizations that enrich, and provide much needs supports to families. Smart Start and More at Four are just to name a few.

Our children are our future and thus so too must the Partnership be.

As a mother of 4, grandmother of 11, great-grandmother of 1, and family child care provider for Infants and Toddlers (B - 2) for 27 years, I KNOW what good work is done through the CCPC. As a board member I have learned so much about the vast knowledge and the scope of activities for improving the lives of young children that is funded and provided through the work of the Partnership. As Board Chair for three years, I learned even more about the involvement of our Partnership in all aspects of the lives of young children and their caregivers. It has been my pleasure to serve on this Board and be involved in improving the quality of care the young children of Chatham County need. Jenny Megginson is the most knowledgeable Executive Director I have ever know. She truly has her hands in every aspect of the work of the CCPC. I admire her and her staff for all they do.

I have been so pleased to be a part of such a dedicated group of people. All care deeply for the success of children and families. They are personally and professionally vested. The Partnership fills a role that no other group in our county could do. They truely form partnerships that work for the benefit of every person in Chatham County by helping the smallest of Chatham County. If it wasn't for the Partnership's guidance I would never have been able to establish a prek program at my local public school. This program is 5 star, has more at four slots and is the only one in one in the entire SW corner of the County.
