The issue facing our community
As the city of Nashville continues to experience a surge in economic growth and prosperity, many Nashvillians face challenges to keep up with the increasing costs of living in a city they call home. On a daily basis, many working families and single parents, in Nashville, are forced to make difficult choices between paying for rent, childcare, and other necessities like food, clothing, and medical care. The availability of space for children continues to diminish as centers close and the population skyrockets. When parents opt for alternative options, such as relying on a family member or a babysitter for care, the likelihood of instability in care increases, thus impacting the bottom line for both families and employers.
