The Central Coordination of Child Care Resource and Referral at The Teaching Research Institute of Western Oregon University provides leadership and technical assistance for 13 Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agencies serving all communities in Oregon. Their mission is to support families and early childhood professionals in meaningful and culturally responsive ways. They advocate for policy to improve accessibility of quality child care and promote multiculturalism in diverse communities. They support quality standards and competencies for early childhood care and education and align services with Spark, the statewide program helping parents and families access quality child care. In addition, Central Coordination promotes strategic communication and collaboration, informing research projects at state and federal levels.
