Letter of Support

"As you know, NAZ has established an ambitious goal of providing over 1,000 Northside families with a “cradle to college” support by 2014. To reach this goal, we will need to stabilize and increase the capacity of high-quality providers of child care and early education serving North Minneapolis. We see FCF as an essential partner in this work. FCF has already established strong working relationships with several Northside child care providers, through its lending and business development programs. We have seen first-hand the results of FCF’s work."
