ECE Honors Neil O'Hanlon at the 11th Annual Volunteer Gala


The ECE Law Project honored Neil O’Hanlon at the 11th Annual Volunteer Gala.  Neil is a fantastic volunteer that wins over tough critics and gets spectacular results for communities that need it most.  Over the past several years, Neil has dedicated countless volunteer hours to help increase the availability of quality child care for working families.  Specifically, Neil has challenged city ordinances that in effect discourage qualified, licensed child care providers from opening child care programs due to excessive permit fees.  Recently Neil settled a case and negotiated terms that are essential for increasing quality child care for working families in the City of Vista.  This is a tremendous success and could not have happened without Neil. In short, Neil’s volunteer hours have been invaluable for assuring that working families will have access to quality child care for their young children.
