U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto on Thursday visited the Children’s Cabinet to meet with local child care advocates and discuss critical child care issues within the state. She was joined by Children’s Cabinet staff along with representatives from the Community Services Agency, Reno-Sparks Chamber of Commerce and local businesses.
Those participating took the opportunity to describe issues many families in the Reno area are facing when it comes to caring for their children. They also offered suggestions on what might improve the situation.
Some cited the high cost of child care as limiting women from re-entering the workforce.
