FORT SMITH (KFSM) - To continue our coverage of River Valley organizations benefiting from the United Way of Fort Smith, one child care center says without the agency they wouldn't be able to provide high quality services.
For a "5NEWS This Morning" segment that aired Saturday (August 29), anchor Daren Bobb interviewed Deborah Dow with the Lincoln Child Care Center. Dow said the center gives low-income and at-risk families a place for their kids to get a rich learning experience. Lincoln Child Care has enrolled kids as young as six weeks old and as old as kindergarten age. Dow also said affordability is the key in providing these services, and they wouldn't be able to do that without the United Way.
The organization does benefit from volunteers in and out of the classroom, but they need to pass a background check. The center has a Facebook page, which a person can access by clicking on this link.
