Event description

Description

Did you know that in Becker County there are over 650 child care slots needed right now? Child care is important for parents to be able to work, for our employers to be effective, for our community to bring in new families and for children to be successful. For every $1 invested in children there is a $17 return on investment studies show, so investing in our youth is a priority. Becker County received a program award from First Children’s Finance to participate in the Rural Child Care Innovative Program. We are working together as a community to help improve access to child care, and you can help. You can learn about how the community identifies the problem by hearing survey results, looking at data about child care and how it impacts community, and then participating to help identify solutions. Join us on November 15th, at Ecumen at 6:30pm in the conference room – a free dinner will be provided.

Further questions can be sent to Karen Pifher at Karen.Pifher@EssentiaHealth.org or call P: 218-844-8379
