Good Morning America

On February 3, NeighborImpact’s Child Care Resources (CCR) program was highlighted in a national news story on Good Morning America. The feature story explored child care deserts across the nation, shed a light on the struggles that child care providers face and recognized NeighborImpact as a prime example of people and resources pulling together to ease child care obstacles.
NeighborImpact’s CCR program works with Central Oregon child care providers to help them start and expand their business by providing education, mentorship, grants and business coaching. The Good Morning America team interviewed CCR director, Karen Prow, about the unique program. The story also showed footage of Tracie Searle, owner of Kid Town Child Care in Bend. Searle received help from NeighborImpact with business support and assistance navigating the permitting process in order to open her business.
“I wouldn’t be here doing this if it weren’t for NeighborImpact,” Searle said.
What an honor to be recognized in this way! NeighborImpact is incredibly proud of the CCR team, whose positive, innovative work has become a model to many other communities—and has garnered national recognition.
