The Bladen County Partnership works with many different local agencies who provide services to children and families and works to identify needed programs and services as well as resources to meet those needs. Often, programs exist but are not being utilized. Sometimes duplication of services are noted. The Partnership was formed to eliminate those duplications and fill the voids in the service delivery system.

By blending and leveraging existing resources and providing funding through Smart Start - the following health programs are made possible to the young children:

  • Child Care Health Consultant Team
  • Baby Bucks Parenting Classes
  • CPR/First Aid Scholarship Program
  • In-Home Breastfeeding Support Program
  • Inclusion Specialist
