Richmond County Partnership for Children in North Carolina

Parental Support

The Partnership offers multiple services for families in Richmond County. Through Child Care Avenues, parents or guardians can request help in locating a child care facility suitable for their family.

We make unbiased referrals, not recommendations, to licensed child care facilities, based on the family’s preferences and needs. There is no charge for referrals. To receive a referral you must call 1-877-230-3024.

Parents and families can request information about the star rating of their child care facility, state child care regulations, choosing quality child care or other child care services for young children.

In addition, the Partnership funds other programs that directly benefit the families of children ages birth to 5.
