YOU CAN #BeAConnection, especially North Carolina’s Faith Communities, especially now!

Connections Matter

Connections matter in building better brains, better futures, and stronger communities where children, families and communities thrive. PCANC offers tools, resources, and ideas to support you in your connection efforts. Hosting a Community Café brings our families and communities together through open conversations and harvesting ideas to improve communities and inspire a call to action. If you are interested in hosting a Community Café with your congregation, please click here for ideas.

Sharing stories of connections inspires us to reach out to others. We encourage you to celebrate connections that matter by dedicating a Connected Congregations Connected Communities (A Children’s Sabbath Celebration) worship service highlighting your connection stories and recognizing the importance of caring, supportive relationships in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. PCANC has collaborated with faith leaders from across the state for ideas and resources for your Connected Congregations Connected Communities Celebration.
