Take Action

Challenges abound for child care providers; senators signal support for additional aid

The Gallatin Valley YMCA started offering free child care for front-line workers in March. There are now 11 children on the waitlist for that service.

The Commons is donating its space for the program for K-8 kids, but it’s still an expensive endeavor for the nonprofit, YMCA CEO Andrea Stevenson said. And now businesses are reopening and more people are going back to work, but schools are staying closed.

Help Our Community Fight the Spread of COVID-19

To all volunteers, organizations, businesses, and individuals in Southwest Montana:

We are encouraged and uplifted by our community’s desire to help one another and mitigate the effects of COVID-19. While we understand the urgency you may feel to act, the best thing you can do for others right now is flatten the curve and practice social distancing. #flattenthecurve
