Symposium on Child and Family Poverty in Brunswick County

Date: April 11, 2019

Time: 1:00 - 4:30 pm

Location: Social Hall


A Symposium titled “Examining the Face of Child and Family Poverty in Brunswick County,” sponsored by the Social Justice Committee of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, will be held from 1-4:30 p.m., Thursday, April 11, at the Church Social Hall and is open to the public.

Speakers include Executive Directors from Smart Start, Communities in Schools, and Brunswick Family Assistance, as well as a Counselor from the Brunswick County Schools.

The Symposium goal is to recommend at least one action to be taken by individuals, groups, or organizations to improve the lives of children and families here in the greater Southport and Oak Island area. This event ties in to Governor Roy Cooper’s recent Early Childhood Action Plan which suggests all of us must work together toward a future where our children grow up healthy, in safe and nurturing families, schools, and communities.
