A Message from CCRS Director, Brenda Eastham & Holiday Hours

Happy Holidays 2023!

Here we are in December.  Another year is almost over. It has been a busy year with many successes and, unfortunately, a few setbacks.

First, just a few of our accomplishments over the last year include:

  • 301 referrals to families looking for childcare, 
  • 117 grants awarded to childcare providers, 
  • 5,818 approvals in our CCAP program, 
  • 287 collaborations and networking activities by our Navigators, working with license exempt non-relative providers, and 
  • hosting over 50 trainings including first aid/cpr, shaken baby, ERS, circle of security, and emergency preparedness.

We continue to work on many committees and advocate for the providers and families in our communities. Next year, we will see new applications and redeterminations in CCAP and new Smart Start Grants that we are grateful to help you with. We look forward to our continued work with each of you.  Thank you for all you do!
