CYFCP Director awarded $130,000 from North Carolina Families United and the United Way of Greensboro – research news
UNCG Research congratulates Dr. Chris Payne and the Center for Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships (CYFCP) on two newly awarded grants totaling $130,000. The United Way of Greater Greensboro has funded “Ready for School, Ready for Life Initiative: Evaluation, Training, and Technical Assistance Support” at $60,000, while North Carolina Families United has funded “Child and Family Coaching Administrative Support” at $70,000.
The United Way of Greater Greensboro, in partnership with the Cemala and Bryan Foundations, created the Ready for School, Ready for Life Initiative to develop effective community partnerships that enhance children’s early development. In pursuit of this goal, the initiative promotes positive parenting and evidence–based interventions for maternal and child mental health. The initiative funds staff through the Guilford County Department of Public Health and the Children’s Home Society/Family Life Council to implement this three year project. Supported by the newly-awarded grant, the CYFCP serves as the research and implementation partner for the initiative and provides technical assistance, evaluation, and oversight for the project programs.
The North Carolina Families United “Child and and Family Coaching Administrative Support” will help salary a CYFCP Center employee to provide coaching for Alamance Alliance System of Care grant parents, participants, and employees. The Alamance Alliance System of Care works in partnership with individuals and families who need services or resources from multiple human service agencies to be safe and successful at home, in school, and in the community. Additionally, the funding will help salary a CYFCP Center employee to provide office support, billing and invoicing support, and payroll services for NC Families United staff and contractors.
