HUNTSVILLE Ala. (WHNT) — Huntsville Parks and Recreation is bringing back its after-school program for the 2022-23 school year.
After a successful first year, Parks and Recreation Director James Gossett said the department could tell there was a dire need from families for more after-school programs.
“I think from our department and even our staff perspective we want to do things that serve the community that the community needs, and that their feedback tells us they need,” Gossett told News 19. “We think this program has really met that need here in Huntsville.”
With inflation continuing to affect affordable daycare and after-school program costs, Gossett hopes this option will bring some relief to local families.
