Mission:
Enriching the community by supporting quality child care and empowering families to aspire to lifelong success

Purpose: Advocate for and support quality child care

Funding:  Primarily public  funds

How we have benefited from being a member of CNL:
In a number of ways from quality workshops, Workshop participation and Networking opportunities with local nonprofits.

How our organization has benefited the community:
We provide resources and referrals to all those in need of child care, regardless of income, and financial support for child care for those who qualify, based on income.  By assisting families with child care support we have lifted many families out of the poverty level land allowed them to re-enter the main stream of society.  We have allowed parents to continue gainful employment and also to pursue higher educational goals, thereby achieving success in life.

Success Story: 
Sierra Nevada Children’s Services has served my family in a number of ways. Initially, we spent time utilizing the toy library, however when there was a change in our family status, and additionally a loss in my income, SNCS enabled my family to receive a child care subsidy. Through this I was able to keep my son with the child care provider he had been with since he was young. I have been able to provide him with stable care, relieving me of financial worries while we got back on our feet. The staff has cared for us through this transition in our lives and we are thankful that they have been there for us as we have needed their services.
