Free Child Care for Children of Farmworkers

The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation program funded child care for Napa County farmworker families through the end of December.

The program covered all fees and was open to Napa County farmworker families enrolled in the Boys and Girls Club who demonstrated financial need.
