Please join us for a candid conversation on November 17, 2014!
Quality, Accessible, Affordable Child Care is Good For:
Children
Working Families
Business
Regional Economic Development

click here for more information

Why:
There are tremendous resources coming into Buffalo for economic development. We want to ensure that a lack of adequate childcare
does not impede this growth AND that local residents have a chance to participate in this growth.

This forum will look at the benefits of good child care systems from a number of perspectives: working families, children, employers and
businesses, and regional economic development.

At the conclusion of this forum, participants will have acquired information from each of these perspectives and will be able to
effectively advocate for increased child care subsidy funding for Erie County from this broad knowledge base.

When:
Monday, November 17, 2014
8am – 12:30pm (breakfast and box lunch provided)

Where:
United Way of Buffalo & Erie County
742 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14209

Please RSVP by 11/11 (due to space limitations):
