A Message From WCCRC in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

A Message From WCCRC in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the COVID pandemic, WCCRC closed our offices to the public and sent our staff to work from home in mid-March 2020. Since then, we have been working diligently from home and online, and honestly, we have worked harder than ever.

Now its time for us to return to the office and to begin serving the community in person, in new ways.

Starting July 14 we will be offering in-person service by appointment only for our Parent Services program and for our Early Learning Library. Our Child Care Consultants will be doing limited home visits for the Registered License-Not-Required providers as well.
