Reach Out and Read of the Carolinas, Cumberland and Surrounding Counties

Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a nationally recognized program that 4C assists with implementing at local medical practices! 


During well child visits for children from infancy through 5 years of age, medical providers at ROR-engaged practices offer age appropriate books to children, while demonstrating interactions with the book and child for the parents.


This will include modeling themselves reading a book aloud to the child, encouraging parent-child interactions with the book, and discussing the importance of reading.

The provided books are new, as well as culturally- and developmentally-appropriate. This is done to increase exposure to books, interest in reading, and to promote early literacy and language development for children.


Coordination services for this program are completed by a Project Coordinator, who supports the medical practice with book ordering, data collection, and overall program oversight.

The ROR program is funded through Smart Start dollars provided by the Partnership for Children of Cumberland County.

Family Connects of North Carolina, Southeastern Region is a community-wide in-home nurse visiting program available to Cumberland County, along with neighboring Hoke and Robeson County families with newborns.

The program is simple: A registered nurse visits a family’s home around 3 weeks after birth to check on mom, baby, and the whole family.


There is no cost to the family, and anyone living in Cumberland, Hoke or Robeson County with a newborn can participate, including foster and adoptive parents.

Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD) is a collaborative program here in Cumberland County, where focus is placed on insuring that developmental screenings for 0-5 year old children occur during primary care well visits.


Based on screening results and findings, this program subsequently promotes that appropriate referrals and resource linkages are established based on identified needs!


Those connections can include the Children’s Developmental Services Agency, Exceptional Children’s Preschool Program, various therapy agencies, and community partners. Practice level support also includes tailored trainings and technical assistance.


Services for this program are completed by an ABCD Coordinator. Parent and practice education, community connections, promotion of early learning/developmental skills, and readiness for school are the desired outcomes for this program.

The ABCD program is funded through Smart Start dollars provided by the Partnership for Children of Cumberland County, a key pillar that is a part of providing child social services in Cumberland County, North Carolina.
