ONE IN FOUR CHILDREN

IN N.C. LIVES IN POVERTY

All across North Carolina, children struggle in school because they lack basic needs that are essential to learning and for day-to-day positive school experiences. Many families do not have the means for items and services such as eye exams and eyeglasses, hearing aids, shoes that fit, school supplies, and much more. NCFPSC provides for these needs through the public school system.
No bureaucracy or red tape. Our philosophy is to trust the word of the educator.
