Help save child care!


The response and recovery to COVID-19 has been extremely challenging for the child care sector. Remaining open to serve essential workers and adopting new practices to safely and effectively care for our community’s youngest citizens has put many providers on a path toward financial failure. Child care has always been essential and providers need our help more than ever.
