Emergency Childcare Available to First Responders
Just this afternoon, Governor Brad Little announced that the statewide 'Stay At Home' order has been extended by 14-days, now to be lifted at the end of April. Spend a few minutes on social media and you'll come across plenty of self-proclaimed experts from both sides of the argument but answers for those in need amid this outbreak remain sparse.
Lucky for us here in the Treasure Valley, individuals, employers, and organizations continue to step up for those in need-- it has been clear time and time again that it's simply what we do.
With school not in session at the moment, it's leaving a lot of parents who are needing to work right now at a loss for how to take care of their kids during the day. Just announced, the Salvation Army is offering free childcare for school-aged children for parents who are medical professionals, healthcare workers, or first responders.
The Salvation Army is following all CDC guidelines when it comes to childcare and they're happy to offer this service to those families impacted and those parents who are truly doing some of the most important work in our society right now.
