CCSA COVID-19 Relief Fund

Give Now To Support NC Child Care Programs

Your donation today directly helps early childhood educators and workers across our state best care for the children of essential workers while we “shelter at home.” COVID-19 has left child care programs to operate in extreme circumstances while providing safe and loving care to children. Child care educators are serving children and families with dwindling supplies, limited personal protective gear and increased health and safety guidelines. You can immediately help us solve this problem.

Your support allows programs in our communities to remain open for essential workers.

Child Care Services Association (CCSA), in collaboration with North Carolina’s Smart Start network and CCR&Rs, have joined together to create the CCSA COVID-19 Relief Fund for child care programs. CCSA and Smart Start have always played a role in helping child care programs provide the highest quality early learning experience for our state’s youngest children. Now that programs are struggling to meet the needs of our essential workforce, CCSA and Smart Start are working together to be a lifeline for programs to get the tools and resources they need during this challenging time.
