Welcome to the website for the Rural Success Project, which seeks to identify and share the strategies rural communities are using to protect children and help families succeed.

Funded at the federal level by the U.S. Children's Bureau, this project is a partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work and 14 North Carolina counties and the Eastern Band of the Cherokee.

Our focus is on your success.
