ABOUT US

Mission And Values

We have been a vital part of the community for about forty years. Helping a parent find child care, training child care providers on how to create safe environments in which to nurture and educate young children, helping parents bridge the affordability gap with child care subsidies, and coaching parents to be nurturing caregivers to their children, are just a few examples of what we do. We help families to succeed, children to learn, and child care providers to be competent, confident caregivers. We continue to grow and fulfill our mission with the help of our donors and volunteers. Through the years, our purpose remains the same: to enrich the lives of children and families.  We are a 501(c)(3) Organization.
