The USDA Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) was founded in 1968 to provide federal funds for healthy meals and snacks served in child care centers and family child care homes. Child Care Development Services has been an Oregon sponsor of the CACFP, providing support and training for Family Child Care Homes since 1977.


CCDS Honored as #1 Small Non-Profit in Oregon for 2011

This is the third time on the 100 Best Nonprofit list for Gresham-based Child Care Development Services. In 2009, it was the No. 4 best small nonprofit, and last year it was No. 2. Its steady rise to the top is no surprise for this nonprofit, which was founded in 1977 and facilitates food reimbursement through the Child and Adult Care Food Program, maintains a data base of certified childcare providers, and offers training to those interested in certification.

"I love the diversity, caring, sharing and sense of family," says one of the organizationís 15 employees. "Staff potlucks and pets in the workplace are common ó and babies, too. The unanticipated gift certificates at staff meetings are great." A robust health benefits package and encouragement to be creative has helped create a very satisfying workplace. "Itís a comfortable, friendly office environment where dogs are welcome and the management is thoughtful," says a staff member.
