“The Boards of Directors of Extend-A-Care for Kids (EAC) and the YMCA of Austin have voted to create a strategic alliance that will combine the licensed preschool, afterschool and camp operations of both organizations to create the new Extend-A-Care YMCA branch,” the release read.
The merger is expected to be finalized in January 2020 according to the release. YMCA of Austin Communication Director Sean Doles said Extend-A-Care locations will continue to operate with no major changes in the near future.
In time, Doles said the new Extend-A-Care YMCA will add more opportunities for children to participate in YMCA activities and enhance existing Extend-A-Care programs.
Extend-A-Care’s main office is located 55 N. I-35 in Austin. 512-472-9402. www.eackids.org
