Working Families Gain Attention in Brainerd

The First Lutheran Church of Brainerd will be the site of a forum discussing the economic challenges facing Minnesota families Tuesday night. Three organizations will offer their point of view during the "Working Families Initiative Form." They are The Children's Defense Fund, Child Care WORKS, and Jobs Now Coalition. Jim Carlson of Child Care WORKS, says too many working Minnesota parents are finding it increasingly difficult to access quality child care, afford health insurance and make ends meet while working full time. He says the recent economic down-turn is only making matters worse. The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The First Lutheran Church is located at 424 South 8Th Street, Brainerd.
