Families First Awarded $15,000 from Corning Foundation on behalf of Corning, Midland!!
For Release 7/22
The childcare industry is experiencing a market failure for providers, families, our community, and the country. A new team member at Corning moved to Cabarrus County and, to this date, months later, is unable to find care for their children- Mom and dad both work.
In 2021 we received a grant awarded by the Corning Foundation to start the hard work of change/recovery. The grant partially funded 1) a strategic planning event with stakeholders and 2) training for Families First to become NC’s first agency to implement an evidence-based model of visiting home-based providers twice-weekly.
