By expanding opportunities for vulnerable children in North Carolina and South Carolina, The Duke Endowment hopes to help them lead successful lives as they mature. We work through accredited organizations and other select nonprofit groups to help children, who are without the benefit of family support or are at risk of losing such support, reach developmental milestones and prepare for successful transitions to adulthood.
We support early intervention, collaborative approaches, and projects that help organizations serve children and their families more effectively. We focus on advancing evidence-based, nationally recognized practices that promote child well-being.
In this section, you’ll find information about specific efforts, both past and present, around key issues in Child and Family Well-Being.
