Attorney Sandra Cabrera of Waystack Frizzell recently assisted the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Colebrook Community Child Care (“CCCC”) in securing over $158,000 in grant funding from the Northern Borders Regional Commission (“NBRC”).
CCCC owns the child care center known as Country Day School in Colebrook, New Hampshire. It will be using this grant to renovate its existing childcare facility; provide teacher training and create new programs. Attorney Cabrera is assisting CCCC in making new partnerships with other entities interested in child care, including the public schools, recreation programs, and other related businesses.
