Government Relations

The Child Care Resource Center works diligently to bring our knowledge of the needs of the children and families served in our communities to decision makers at the local, state and federal government.

Our Government Relations department works with the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Coalition and other advocacy organizations and service providers to identify the need for child care and early education across the state. We meet with local, state and federal officials to educate them of the need in our communities and explain the resources and services CCRC provides.
