Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County Open Emergency Childcare for Healthcare Professionals and First Responders

As parents and children gather their back-to-school supplies, Car Seats Colorado is reminding parents and caregivers about car seats and booster seats.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County (BGCLC) has opened their doors to provide emergency childcare for healthcare professionals and first responders. This service is available at their Loveland and Fort Collins Boys & Girls Club facilities and is open to school-aged youth 5-13 years old. Hours at both sites will be 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

This has been a collaborative effort between the Boys & Girls Clubs, Larimer County Health Department, Banner Health Systems and many other community partners. These sites will follow local and state mandates to ensure the safety and well being of children and staff.  

Kaycee Headrick, CEO for Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County said, “Although the situation around COVID-19 remains fluid, our goal is to continue our mission — to serve the kids who need us the most. Right now, the kids who need us most are those with parents or guardians who are serving on the frontlines of the pandemic. Our community’s first responders, healthcare workers and others providing critical services cannot choose between staying home with their families and going to work. That is why we have stepped up to give them a safe place to send their kids, so they can head to work knowing their kids are in safe hands.”

To learn more about these emergency sites, please contact (970) 223-1709.
