strategies to encourage the growth of quality, affordable child care.
“In 2022, survey respondents in Mount Vernon-Lisbon reported that only 43% of families were able to find affordable, quality child care that met their family’s needs. Interested community members can help by attending this important meeting.”Linda Bigley, spokesperson for the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Child Care Solutions Group.
