Saddled with debt, WI's Child Development Inc. closed its doors and left community without quality childcare, but with city's help it's being reborn as nonprofit.
"Before it closed its doors to south side neighbors, [Ndazonia] Ndafooka walked with her now two-year-old toddler to Child Development, Inc. every day. However, the child care facility fell into debt and out of its five-star ranking. 'We were really in shock and frantically looking for something,' Ndafooka said. Since then, the city stepped in and allocated $34,000 in emergency funds to the facility. Kaleem Caire, former head of the Urban League, then took up the project, creating a nonprofit organization to refund and rebrand the day care as One City Early Learning Centers." -- Dannika Lews, WISCtv.com
