The challenge:

For families with single parents or limited resources, child care needs to be accessible. Too often, families who need child care to relieve those parents working to support their families cannot afford child care.

The solution: Neighborhood Nanny

Neighborhood Nanny provides childcare at affordable, sliding scale rates for families of all shapes and sizes. All families are WELCOME and SAFE in its care.

Amber won first prize at our Social Pitch VII in April 2017. She was able to use her funding for… And she also received a promotional video (see below), a platform at The Social Pitch to share her mission with new friends, ongoing full-time membership at HatchLab PDX, access to workshops for further business development and technical service support, and more so than anything else, bi-monthly 3-hr coursework with Amy Pearl and Danielle Olson in mentorship of her social enterprise.
