Description:

Colorado utilizes a regional resource and referral network to deliver services for child care resource and referrals (CCR&R). CCR&R organizations conduct work specific to supporting a system of local or regional child care resource and referral organizations coordinated to ensure efficient and effective delivery of child care information and resources to families and programs. The program supports the recruitment, licensing and retention of early care and education providers, including family child care. The program offers training, technical assistance and resource to centers and family homes to ensure licensing compliance, emergency preparedness and health and safety.

Our regional CCR&R partners with the centralized call center at Mile High United Way to ensure accurate licensed program data and local resources are available to the referral specialists when assisting families including additional needs for enhanced or special needs referrals and community support when a provider closes.
