January forum City Club of Central Oregon

Thursday, January 17, 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The lack of viable child care options in Central Oregon is hitting us right in our economic pocketbook. There is one available slot for every three children who need care in Deschutes County. Along with the labor shortage across all industries, the lack of child care is adding to the difficulty for employers in hiring talent. Businesses report higher levels of absenteeism and employees stressed by the ever-changing child care landscape. Parents who are struggling to re-enter the workforce are unable to do so because child care options are either not available or affordable.

Multiple factors are contributing to our lack of child care resources. Our panel will discuss the challenges faced by families and employers due to the lack of affordable child care option and discuss the obstacles and opportunities in opening more high-quality child care centers in Central Oregon.

Cost: $25 members / $45 non-members. Plated lunch is included.
