In 2019, when McCook decided to increase access to childcare, they didn’t know what the future would bring. In 2021, the community came incredibly far, but they’re still surging ahead. Read about their impressive strides to create quality early care and programs.

Gering Communities for Kids (C4K) prides itself in building a brighter future for their families through community engagement. As an organization that drives home the same mission, Nebraska Children and Families Foundation couldn’t agree more. In our minds, we can accomplish some incredible feats, including creating quality childcare for children 0-5. Our initiative, Communities for Kids (C4K), accomplishes this goal in partnership with communities like Gering. Read more about how this newer C4K team creates quality care solutions.

    “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.”
