Save time and money with the Provider Resource Hub (formerly the Georgia Alliance for Quality Child Care)! Budgets are tight and running a child care business has never been more challenging or time consuming. What if you could save time and money while also managing your program more effectively? By having a single resource for ordering essential supplies, using existing documents, templates, access to free training, and business services, Provider Resource Hub (PRH) members can do more. The PRH is a password protected web portal with 3,500 tools and resources for licensed child care programs and programs just getting started. Members can easily access these resources while saving money with vendor partners. And thanks to the generous support of United Way of Greater Atlanta, if you are a child care program in one of these 13 counties -- Butts, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding, and Rockdale -- you can receive a free 1-year membership to the Provider Resource Hub.
