"Strong Communities Raise Strong Children"


Our Vision

That every child in Craven County has a safe, healthy and caring environment where each one can reach his or her full potential through strong families and a supportive community. 
Our Mission:

We provide Craven County families with educational information on child development, safety and parenting, and we advocate for the improvement of outcomes for families and children in our community.

Next meeting of the Community Coalition for Craven County Children is Monday, August 11th at 9:00 AM at the Easter Seals Building at 2801 Neuse Blvd. in New Bern.  We hope you will join us as we continue to work toward our vision.

School is letting out and it's time for some fun in the sun! 
With the time off from school, summer can be a great time to teach kids about health and wellness.
Try letting your child pick one television show to watch each day then fill the remaining time with fun crafts, hobbies, outdoor sports and family activities.
Or dance around the house with the kids to burn calories, build lean muscle and enjoy some quality family time.  
Get more great tips from MetroHealth that can keep you and your kids, and kids in the community, leading an active, healthy lifestyle this season!
