Buncombe Partnership for Children

WHAT THEY DO: Buncombe Partnership for Children is on a mission to strengthen the capacity of educators, families and the community to build a strong foundation for children’s learning and development, starting at birth. BPFC invests in children ages birth to 5 and their families, caretakers and educators by partnering with local organizations to improve the quality of early childhood education; increase access to affordable, high-quality early care; expand early literacy; support children’s healthy development; and provide family support.
