Making Improvements Sustainable: Policies that Matter

Let’s spend some time talking about the big picture: creating organizational policies that ensure sustainability for the improvements you make. And, equally critical are the local and state policies that promote high quality in our children’s places and spaces. Share your organization’s policies and learn about NC Child, an organization that builds a strong North Carolina by advancing public policies to ensure all children – regardless of race, ethnicity, or place of birth – have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
