Partnership offers child care referrals

The Mesa County Partnership for Children and Families now serves as a resource of referrals to licensed child care providers in the area.

Providers who want to update rates or vacancies and parents looking for child care should call 244-3838. Information also is available to those interested in becoming licensed providers.

“The Partnership for Children and Families will handle the licensing referrals for child care, and Western Colorado 211 will continue to offer free, confidential and comprehensive resources for services such as food, clothing, financial assistance or access to health care,” said Christie Higgins, director of Western Colorado 211. “We feel this adjustment will offer residents the best access to services when a need arises.”
