This town has, like, 30,000 kids in day care, but until Connections opened a few years back, the folks providing that care had nowhere to turn for help, guidance or skills-building. Connections -- a joint project of the city and ACC, with foundation support as well -- offers materials, referrals, workshops, meeting space, and beaucoup other services for parents, teachers and child care providers to help improve the quality of life of all Austin's children. With its recent expansion, and acquisition of a van for mobile services, Connections appears to have made the jump from "project" to "institution."
