We care deeply about the children and families in our community. We are here for you as
we all face the challenges related to the Coronavirus. This pandemic has brought rapid
changes and much stress in our daily lives. Parents, child care providers, businesses and our
economy are significantly impacted. We will continue to advocate for safe and healthy
prevention strategies and educational opportunities in our community. We must all make
intentional efforts to remain healthy and curb the spread of this virus.
