Family Support Services

We know parenting is hard and we also know that you want the best for your child. So do we! We are here to provide Fayetteville area families with support through referrals, resources, and subsidies.

Eva L. Hansen Learning Library

Our learning library provides educational events, toys, and books for children up to 5-years old. We also have parenting materials. We have more than 7,000 items for lending to parents,
grandparents and caregivers.

Education Express

When children can’t make it to the Learning Library, we bring the fun and learning to them! The Education Express will visit a Child Care or other children’s program and provide a fun, learning experience.

Car Seat Safety Program

Having a fully functioning car-seat that is properly installed is important for your child’s safety and well-being. If you need a car-seat, our Child Safety Seat Program might be an option for you.

Child Care Referral

Finding a child care provider can be challenging. We offer a free, online child care search tool that can help you find a high-quality, licensed provider.
