The Lucy Daniels Center provides SecurePath in conjunction with Wake County SmartStart's initiative to ensure that emotionally at-risk young children with special needs have early intervention services to better prepare them for success in school and life. Services are provide free of charge to children age five and younger, who have not yet started kindergarten.
