Make child care a priority!

    1. Petition by

      Voices for America's Children

Millions are struggling to find and hold a job in the wake of the recession. One thing that has always helped is child care; having high-quality, affordable care for children gives parents the flexibility to advance their careers.

But federal support for child care is drying up. Federal stimulus dollars that propped up child care support to parents is running out, even as demand continues to increase natiowide.

Tell Congress: Increase child care support for struggling families!

      Day care is completely out of reach for the 99%. Why are our children such a low priority in this country? They are our future and we are investing nothing in them. There is such a lack of empathy for struggling parents. They cannot go back to work because the childcare is too expensive.

      Day care is very expensive and impossible to find for me. My son needs a daycare provider that can deal with anger issues and meltdowns. He cannot go to the YMCA or Boys & Girls Club or a traditional day care because of these issues.

      When you are a single mom and you make to much for AB3632 benefits and don't qualify for medical, your special needs child gets very little benefits. Very stressful and taxing on everybody.
