We can't do this without you all.
As a regional partner in the Smart Start network, the NC DHHS and North Carolina Partnership for Children has asked the Region A Partnership for Children to address requests for assistance by child care providers in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, and Swain Counties as well as the Qualla Boundary.
We have dedicated our Child Care Health Consultants and staff members to field calls and provide resources to are child care facilities. This is a daunting task at any other time, and as you know, the rapid change in policy, information, and needs of community due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we need your help.
We have diligently worked with the State to keep paying subsidy, NC Pre-K, and WAGE$ payments even as child care facilities are closing. Please help support our efforts as we try and help directors manage the burdening costs to keep their centers open at a time when more and more families are faced with making difficult financial decisions.
Please consider a one time financial donation or recurring monthly donation to help support our child care partners, professionals, families, and children in Region A.
