Existing child care models fall short of meeting the needs of the multitudes of low-income workers and job seekers who work non-traditional hours or have irregular schedules. Better alignment and greater connections are needed between job training, employment, and childcare to maximize low-income parents’ participation in the workforce and in careers that place them on a path to self-sufficiency.

Join Us To Help Ask the Tough Questions.... 

  • What would a child care program look like if it met the needs of low-income parents working non-standard schedules and irregular hours?
  • How might we better align child care vouchers and training program requirements?
  • What funding and/or regulatory changes are needed to make the child care voucher system work better for low-income working families?

And leave with answers that lead to action!
