The Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce and the Phelps County Community Foundation are collecting data to help identify the needs for our early childcare and education programs, and we need your assistance. Once the survey results are analyzed, HACC and PCCF will partner with residents, businesses, and early childhood groups to find solutions to the needs identified in the surveys.
