The government may be shutdown, but MyVillage isn’t!

Below is a note to the educators in the MyVillage Community. If you are interested in learning more about MyVillage or about our reimbursement bridge during the shutdown, please email [email protected]

Dear Community:

One of our promises to you is that “It’s your business, but you aren’t alone”.

The government shutdown is complex and seems to be sticking around. As we discussed the impacts of the shutdown, we knew that we din’t want the educators in our community to be vulnerable. Frankly, we don’t want anyone to be vulnerable to this, but we are mighty glad to be able to be able to lessen the impact in MyVillage.

We know that many of the programs in our community are depending on reimbursements for Federal Food Program, CCAP (CO) and for Best Beginnings (MT). We will bridge that gap.

MyVillage will bridge your reimbursements until the government reopens and catches up. Please email [email protected] to set up your bridge. Your program and your family are covered.

We are building MyVillage to give you increased support and a larger safety net. You focus on taking care of the kids and families in your care, we will take care of you.
