Emergency & Disaster Relief Fund from CFWNC
•THANK YOU• for emergency funding provided by The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina to provide direct financial support to licensed childcare programs, so that they can remain open and serve the children of families of critical workers in responding to the COVID-19 crisis.
Child care educators were among the lowest-paid professionals in our community before this crisis, but they have been stepping up now to meet this challenge head on. Emergency Child Care Wage Supplements will make payments directly to the staff caring for our community’s children in recognition of their personal risk of exposure to this disease, as well as the potential risk that they take home to their own families at the end of every day.
“CFWNC’s Emergency and Disaster Response Fund (EDRF) is supporting nonprofit organizations serving individuals and families whose needs have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
