The state’s family child care providers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They are the unsung heroes who are taking care of our children so their parents, those with essential jobs — who can’t stay home — can continue to work for the benefit of us all. In this moment of crisis, they are continuing to care for the children of health care providers, emergency personnel and other employees who are absolutely necessary to keep us healthy and safe.
As an agency, we are working to find ongoing funding, but these dedicated family child care providers need your help NOW. If you are able to donate to our COVID-19 Emergency fund for Child Care, it will make all the difference in the world to a program in your neighborhood, and to the health care workers and other essential personnel who are able to keep doing their jobs for the benefit of society.
