Action – Childcare

Most women who spend more than two years away from work cite access to affordable and high quality childcare as at least part of their reason for not working. At YWCA, we love stay at home moms. Our concern is when women pause their careers to stay home with their children not out of choice but out of necessity. Urge congress to invest in childcare to make childcare a more sustainable career option for childcare providers, and a more affordable option for families seeking care.
