The COVID 19 recession and pandemic has affected everyone, but the experience differs from one person, community, and industry to the next. This presentation uses some of the available market data to tell the story of what we know about the current labor market situation. – Anneliese Vance-Sherman, PhD Regional Labor Economist Washington Employment Security Department

Child care touches our community in so many ways. Whether it’s a business owner’s struggle to hire and maintain a workforce with limited access to child care, a young family’s struggle to find quality care, or the general social and economic impact a lack of child care has for the broader Camano Island community, child care is both a personal and far reaching issue. Jessie Gunn, Executive Director of Whidbey Community Foundation, and County Lead of Partners for Young Children in Island County
