Direct Service Providers

Smart Start of Forsyth County has collaborated with local community partners since its inception in 1994. One way that we support our Forsyth County community is by funding programs. We work closely with local agencies to help determine which programs are most needed, and which stakeholders are best suited to successfully administer those programs. The agencies we fund are known as DPSs (Direct Service Providers). Smart Start of Forsyth County’s DSP partners work diligently to provide our children and families with services while practicing safe social distancing. Our programs maximize the latest technology and digital platforms to host meetings and workshops for the safety and convenience of our community, especially during the COVID-19 recovery period. For example, our providers are using read along videos that can be played in Doctor’s offices in lieu of paper activities to help reduce contamination and meet new office guidelines.

We appreciate all our DSPs and everything they do for our community. Below is a listing of all the agencies we work with and the programs they provide through Smart Start of Forsyth County Funding for the 2020-2021 program year.
