Chapel Hill Training Outreach Project
Chapel Hill Training Outreach Project, located in Chapel Hill, NC with locations in Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties of NC, was established in 1969 and is a national provider of training and technical assistance services, audiovisual and print materials, and direct services to children, families and communities.
We are proud that our local and national programs have a longstanding success rate of enhancing the lives of children and their families. Our services concentrate on families from low-income households, families caring for the elderly, children with disabilities or chronic illness, and children at risk of abuse and neglect. Our local programming includes Head Start, Early Head Start in Durham and Chapel Hill as well as KidSCope, and our national programming includes FRIENDS (Family Resource Information, Education, and Network Development Service) for the community-based prevention of child abuse and neglect, and ARCH (Access to Respite Care and Help) which promotes respite care for families caring for loved ones at home.
Our Mission is to educate and empower children, families, communities and organizations by delivering unique educational and supportive services.
Our vision is to create environments where children, families, educators and communities achieve full potential and commit to lifelong learning.
