Shared Services Alliance is supported by a grant from the Grand Victoria Foundation. The Shared Services Alliance was formed by Child Care Resource & Referral to improve efficiency and allow for more attention to be centered around the children in care.
Created in early 2016, the Alliance currently includes three founding members: EduCare in Joliet, Grace's Place (centers in Plainfield and Plano), plus the Spanish Community Center in Joliet and Sandbox in Homer Glen.
If you are interested in learning more about the Shared Services Alliance and how you can become a member, please contact CCR&R's Executive Director, Chris Bzdon at firstname.lastname@example.org
