Northeast Indiana currently has three counties that have an Early Childhood Coalition, including Huntington County. More counties throughout the state are working on developing even more. In addition to local county coalitions, the Northeast Indiana Regional Early Childhood Coalition (NEIRECC) supports all of them.
Local community coalitions are vital to helping solve the childcare crises in Northeast Indiana. In order for local economies to thrive, childcare options need to be available to everyone at every income level. It requires parents, childcare providers, employers, and local community leaders to work together to create solutions unique to each county and community.
