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.

Who We Are

OCPC offices

The Onslow County Partnership for Children is a child- and family-serving organization in Onslow County, North Carolina. Established in 1998 to strengthen the systems of care surrounding children and families, OCPC is a public-private partnership that unites all sectors of the community toward the healthy development of its youngest citizens—and toward the future prosperity of the community as a whole. OCPC believes that when we invest wisely in children and families, the next generation will pay that back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship.

OCPC serves four key roles on behalf of the community:

Human Services Provider

OCPC provides a wide range of direct services to children and families, including home visiting, parent support, military family support, intervention services, and childcare access and referral.

Professional Development Hub

OCPC coordinates and hosts a robust menu of mentoring, training and technical assistance programs for the teachers and administrators who serve our County’s children in non-school settings. OCPC is a leading agency for workforce development in the early care and education field.

Administrative Services Provider

OCPC provides administrative services to a host of non-profit organizations including program evaluation, fiscal management and accounting. OCPC is an authorized provider for Continuing Education Unit’s related to the child development field in North Carolina.

Community Convener and Thought-Leader

As a convener, OCPC hosts many community events, including the annual State of the Child breakfast, the Diamonds & Denim gala, and the Summer Programs Fair. OCPC is also engaged in community-wide initiatives such as Shape Onslow County. In addition, because of its presence in regional, statewide and national policy circles, OCPC is on the frontlines of best practice and serves as a translator to the community of new discoveries and developments in the field.

What gives life to all of these areas of activity are the strong relationships we cultivate—with clients, caregivers, community leaders, military officials, and the web of organizations and institutions that are part of the social fabric. These relationships enable us to effectively and efficiently identify gaps, and leverage resources and opportunities on behalf of our County’s growing population.
