Organization Description

Chaffee County Early Childhood Council (CCECC) is a group of local agencies and individuals, including parents and professionals in the areas of health, mental health, child care and education, committed to working together to support parents and caregivers. Our work focuses on the following four areas:

We’re here to help families thrive.
