After serving the community for 27 years under the name “Work Family Resource Center”, the organization has announced a new name – “Child Care Resource Center” – along with a new logo. The big reveal took place at the 8th Annual Children’s Champion Award Luncheon on Tuesday, April 10 at Forsyth Country Club.
Katura Jackson, Executive Director, said, “The name Child Care Resource Center better reflects the important work that we do. We connect families to quality child care, provide professional development opportunities to child care providers, and educate the community about the link between quality child care/early learning experiences and school preparedness. Our new logo represents connection – we connect families to child care, we connect child care providers to professional development training, and we are a connector in the community regarding the importance of quality child care and its impact on a child’s future.”
During the luncheon, the organization also announced its new location to the community. Their offices are now located in the Loewy Building at 500 West Fourth Street, and they will be hosting an Open House for the public on June 21 4:30-6:30pm.
Two Children’s Champions were honored at the event – Mr. Joe Crocker, Director of the Local Impact in Forsyth County program at the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and Ms. Daisy Rodriguez-Besse, Director of Childhood Hunger Programs at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.
This event was made possible by the generous support of Salem Smiles Orthodontics, Allegacy Federal Credit Union, First Citizens Bank, Kaplan Early Learning Company and Womble Bond Dickinson, LLP.
