Onslow County Partnership for Children:

We are a private non-profit agency that advocates and provides services for the healthy development of children, by building the strengths and capacities of families, care-giving professionals, and the communities in which they reside.

Our Committees

In addition to being led by a Board of Directors comprised of local community members, OCPC involves other stakeholders through a variety of committees that focus on issues and services specific to our community. We appreciate the time and talents of all of our partners througout various sectors of the community who participate in the work of the Partnership.
