How do you address inequity?
The Tulsa Hub Sites address inequity by providing access to free and low-cost childcare programs throughout the city of Tulsa so that parents who are not able to take time off of work or who work from home have a high-quality and accessible option for their children while schools are operating virtually. These hub sites also provide critical access to food and meals for families most vulnerable to hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
