|Description:||ChildCare Ventures is a program that was designed to ensure our local community has the necessary childcare programs working families desperately need.
We believe childcare programs must have access to business management training in order for local childcare facilities to keep pace with the rapid increase in demand. This includes access to technical assistance in facilities development, appropriate loan products, and land use and real estate assistance.
ChildCare Ventures is a program of SCCCU. It is a collaborative effort of the Central Coast Small Business Development Center, El Pajaro Community Development Corporation, Santa Cruz Community Ventures, the Human Resources Agency of Santa Cruz County, and Santa Cruz County Office of Education Child Development Resource Center.
