With the COVID-19 pandemic spreading, schools are closed, working from home has become almost mandatory, and everyday household essential needs are becoming pressing concerns. Our aim is to explore childcare and these other essential household needs to help our communities develop options to adapting to this new norm.
Solutions will be key part of this approach, as needs are unknown and unique to each individual. The goal is to understand what is being provided in childcare resources as a baseline to helping understand where other gaps may exist. As we engage more directly with our communities, we can identify gaps and garner ideas to develop immediate options as we learn what long term solutions will be needed to help us define a new norm.
