Brigham Center Exempt Emergency Child Care Program

During these unprecedented times, the Brigham Community Center is responding to the critical need for child care services for emergency personnel.

Effective Monday, March 30, beginning at 7:00am, the Brigham Community Center will provide childcare for emergency personnel who do not have the option to work from home, as defined by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Exempt Emergency Child Care Programs (EECCPs) will support essential workers and vulnerable families that have no other option for childcare services (e.g., family members). Families should be seeking alternative non-group care settings for childcare to abide by social distancing during this public health emergency. EECP providers, authorized through a unique request and approval process by EEC, are required to prioritize vulnerable children and children of families who must work to maintain the health, safety and welfare of all Commonwealth citizens due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Brigham Community Center has been supporting children and families for over 100-years here in the Berkshires, impacting countless and moving families toward successful futures. We are proud to be able to offer EECCP for families in the greatest need here in our community during this time of great crisis.
