IMPROVING LIVES OF YOUNG CHILDREN

Over the next five years, we will build a resilient culture in North Carolina by mitigating the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

 

Vision

 

At the Winer Family Foundation, our vision is that all children born in North Carolina have the same opportunity to thrive.

 

Mission

 

We build capacity and align systems to ensure all families with children aged prenatal to five are healthy, educated and empowered.

 

"The earliest investments yield the greatest returns."

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

FOCUS ON WHOLE CHILD DEVELOPMENT

We believe the best chances for well-being and a successful life come from investments in all three of the components of whole child development - education, family support and health - during the earliest years. 

INVEST FOR IMPACT

We establish and support sustainable intersections between early childhood education and health to create collaborative partnerships in efforts to build capacity within and between systems to serve more children and families.

PROMOTE A STRONG STATEWIDE VOICE

We leverage our relationship with other foundations and nonprofits across the state to promote and strengthen a strong statewide voice for whole child investment.

POSITION EQUITY AT THE FOREFRONT

We are committed to analyzing our work and ideas through an equity-focused lens that requires a continual process of learning, disaggregating data and questioning historical policies that create barriers for underserved populations to move forward.
