There is a critical lack of child care slots in the greater Grand Island area. For every 100 children under the age of six, there are only 32 child care slots available. We have the only community-based plan that addresses the addition of quality, reduced fee, 24-hour child care slots in Grand Island.
The shortage and expense of childcare has caused a crisis for low-income families. We also know that when our families learn different problem-solving skills they will understand better ways to use their resources and ultimately make decisions that will change their family dynamic.
