ABOUT US

Safe Kids Durham County is a non-profit agency located in Durham, NC. Because the leading cause of death and disability for children ages 1-14 is accidental and unintentional, our mission revolves around providing injury prevention education to the families of our community. Safe Kids Durham County operates under the 501C3 umbrella of the Duke University Medical Center. Lead agencies for Safe Kids Durham County are Duke Children's Hospital and Duke University Hospital Emergency Department. We are also one of many coalitions of Safe Kids USA, the first and only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury.
