North Carolina Flagship Program
Faithful Families was developed and first implemented in North Carolina, where it continues to build statewide capacity while serving as the center for national program development.
North Carolina’s statewide Faithful Families program is facilitated by health educators from local health departments and local Extension offices (EFNEP Program Associates, Family and Consumer Science Agents, and SNAP-Ed Agents). Faithful Families can be implemented in any faith community, and facilitators are encouraged to work with communities that experience the greatest disparities in health.
