Smart Start of Mecklenburg will pass through funds to the Health Department to deliver services.  The program is designed to work with families who may have histories of maltreatment, mental health and/or substance abuse issues and to work with families who are at serious risk of producing adverse childhood experiences, including child maltreatment.  There is no County funding impact.
