Dear Cumberland County Community Supporter,

The Parent Town Hall Event, scheduled for October 24th, 2017, at the Partnership for Children has been POSTPONED. After reviewing the number of pre-registered attendees, it has been determined that it is best to postpone this event to a later date. The NCYC initiative appreciates your support during “Let’s Talk Month” and looks forward to seeing you at future events.
