Working with East CO amid COVID-19

No one goes to work unless childcare goes to work–and every business depends on someone who depends on child care. Our resiliency throughout COVID, and our adaptability to be able to thrive in the midst of a pandemic shows the value of our business as a driver of the economy. Evans Early Childhood highly values the ongoing support of East Colorado SBDC for consulting and support during this time, as well as technical assistance as we prepare to expand our center through SBA funding.
