It was set in place in conjunction with local school districts to help first responders, health care workers and vulnerable families seeking work.
Because families are still signing up for the emergency childcare, the YMCA does not know how many kids are involved, but the executive director says they have an idea.

You can reach out the YMCA to see if you’re eligible to receive child care.
