Finding affordable daycare can be challenging in Deschutes County, so the Deschutes County Commission on Children and Families is looking for input. They will be conducting a survey of employers and employees during December and January to find out what issues exist and how the county can help. Mary Lorence says the purpose of the survey is to educate the community. “For childcare providers and people who work in the field, they usually have low wages and long hours and it costs a lot for parents, so it's kind of a struggle.” Some of the companies that have agreed to the survey are T-Mobile and Deschutes County employees.
