Seven years ago, we met Corina. She was finishing school and needed a safe daycare for her infant daughter, Shaniya. The Jordan Child & Family Enrichment Center welcomed Shaniya and, a few years later, her sister, Cherish. Corina works three jobs to support her family and she treasures her Jordan Center friends who have embraced them through the years.

“This isn’t a place where you say, ‘Oh, my kids go to this daycare,’ ” Corina says. “This is family. Ms. Rene’, Ms. Katherine, all of the teachers. They have always been there for us.”
