Your Voice Can Make a Difference—Tell us your stories
State and County lawmakers rely on hearing from the public to decide what kind of funding and eligibility to give to child care. Stories from parents can help shape how lawmakers prioritize what our communities’ need. Personal experiences in dealing with child care are incredibly valuable and vital for our leaders to hear right now, as our State and Local Governments begin to make key budget decisions that can directly affect our access to child care.

You can have a huge impact on whether policymakers work to make child care more affordable by helping them recognize that our communities need better access to child care for parents to work, climb the career ladder, move ahead and for our children to receive the solid foundation and education we need for our communities to thrive.

We need your stories to help us create an accurate statewide report that will illustrate the reality parents face in finding and keeping quality child care; simple stories that just tell it like it is. Can the parents of the children you care for answer these questions or you, yourself?
