Harvesting Hope: Advancing Child Care Access in Rural & Appalachian Ohio

This webinar will elevate the issue of child care access disparities in rural and Appalachian Ohio. The region faces unique challenges, with a significant proportion of children living in child care deserts and poverty. Nearly one in three children in these areas live in poverty, and almost two in three children in rural Ohio lack access to quality child care services.


We cover an overview of the child care crisis in rural and Appalachian Ohio and how the Farm Bill proposes to invest in child care infrastructure.
