This is the third time on the 100 Best Nonprofit list for Gresham-based Child Care Development Services. In 2009, it was the No. 4 best small nonprofit, and last year it was No. 2. Its steady rise to the top is no surprise for this nonprofit, which was founded in 1977 and facilitates food reimbursement through the Child and Adult Care Food Program, maintains a data base of certified childcare providers, and offers training to those interested in certification.

“I love the diversity, caring, sharing and sense of family,” says one of the organization’s 15 employees. “Staff potlucks and pets in the workplace are common — and babies, too. The unanticipated gift certificates at staff meetings are great.” A robust health benefits package and encouragement to be creative has helped create a very satisfying workplace. “It’s a comfortable, friendly office environment where dogs are welcome and the management is thoughtful,” says a staff member.
