Two years after forming to address the area’s child care challenges, Door County Children of Hope will see one of their goals take shape this fall. The non-profit organization is looking to open a child-care facility in an unused wing of Sturgeon Bay Health Services. Nicole Allen from Door County Children of Hope says once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, she hopes the kids and the older residents see a benefit of interacting with each other as a part of their daily routine.
Allen says they are hoping with a little help from Sturgeon Bay Health Services and other community partners, Door County Children of Hope will be able to open the facility in October. Pre-enrollment and hiring for the facility are going right now on their website.
