Child Care Services
Child Care services are provided as an integral part of efforts that are necessary for supportive human services and successful planning and implementation of neighborhood revitalization efforts. These services support neighborhood residents in their efforts to become employed, maintain employment and increase the economic viability of the community. The services will also reduce or abate the neighborhood alienation and isolation found among many working parents through increased awareness of support services for families.
