Ella Sell and Liam Connors work on their laptops at the EverGrow Learning Center, a nonprofit created to help local workers find affordable child care. The center has weathered a difficult first year.

Hope Engen and her husband were pretty near wit’s end a year ago when their daycare provider left the business, leaving the couple facing some tough choices.

“I got the list from the county and started calling all the local daycare places and couldn’t find a single daycare that had space available for two children,” Hope Engen said. “We heard that EverGrow was opening up soon, and the timing worked out great.”
