Dr. Christine Murray (Center for Youth, Family and Community Partnerships) received new funding from UNC Chapel Hill for the project “Examining the Black Box: A Formative and Evaluability Assessment of Cross-sectoral Approaches for Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence.”
This project is a subaward with UNC-CH researchers to conduct research sponsored by NIJ related to conducting evaluations of Family Justice Centers (FJCs). Murray is involved with this work based on past involvement with the evaluation of the Guilford County FJC, as well as her involvement with the statewide FJC Evaluation Workgroup, which is organized by the UNC-CH researchers overseeing the NIJ-funded project.
Murray also received new funding from the The Cemala Foundation for the project “Promoting Infant and Toddler Early Development through Music in Guilford County through Kindermusik Programming and Resources.”
The UNC Greensboro Center for Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships (CYFCP) is participating in a community collaborative that also involves the CYFCP’s Bringing Out the Best program; the Guilford County Partnership for Children; Education, Quality Improvement, and Professional Development for Early Care and Education Programs (EQuIPD), which is also housed at UNC Greensboro; and Parents as Teachers Greensboro.
The purpose of this collaboration is to leverage Kindermusik International’s Guilford County presence through their headquarters in Greensboro to (1) infuse the Guilford County community with Kindermusik’s resources and programming for underserved children ages 0-3, their families, and their early childhood care and education settings and (2) harness the power of music to promote early childhood development in our community.
