Keep Northeastern Child Care Center Alive

This petition had 247 supporters


Interim President Richard Helldobler chose to reverse the exemption for the Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) Child Care Center during the furlough week of Spring Break, citing the state budget impasse.  The Child Care Center is fully self-funded by OUR tuition, including staff salaries, student aide pay, energy bills, and cleaning costs.  In other words, we receive NO funding from NEIU or the State of Illinois.  The Child Care Center is a vital part of the northwest side of Chicago, and we need your help to keep it thriving. We are your teachers, healthcare workers, civil servants, and small business owners, and without reliable child care, we cannot serve our community.  PLEASE help us reinstate our exemption from future university closures.
