Childcare providers are a shining example of indispensable professionals. They care for our children so parents can work. They create stimulating, educational, and memorable learning experiences for children during the most critical times of their lives. And unfortunately, they are often overlooked, under-compensated, and left in the dark. Nebraska Children and Families Foundation and partners like Auburn Sixpence help families thrive. Sixpence, one of our early childhood initiatives, aims to promote this mission, especially for children 0-3.
Nebraska Children and Families Foundation’s work includes many meaningful initiatives. There’s one, however, that’s extra special. Camp Catch-Up (CCU) is a moving event that takes place during the summer and fall. Read about the latest session.
“We need to look at any child in need as one of our own, not as the state’s responsibility or Washington’s concern but one of our own kids. These are Nebraska’s kids. And we need to be the solution. I want Nebraska’s local community approach to be a model for other states to follow when it comes to preventing problems from becoming a crisis for families and children.”
