The Next Generation Campaign
"As a single parent, I am not only a full-time mother but a full-time worker as well and with that being said my little girl has attended daycare, or as we call it ‘school,’ since she was 6 weeks old. Since the day I found out I was pregnant, putting my little one into a safe and great learning environment has always been my first priority. Because I work long hours and have to be away from her most of the day during the week – her school has been like a second home to her.
I have never been able to qualify for any assistance (WIC, food stamps, etc.) as I have a really great job. With this being said, times really started getting tough, between paying monthly bills, rent, groceries, daycare, etc. A friend mentioned Childcare Resources to me and I applied for financial assistance. After being on the waiting list for a while, I was interviewed by Childcare Resources’ Financial Assistance Coordinator. When I was told I was approved for SCCP, tears of joy fell down my face. I was so happy that I didn’t have to start looking for other options and making sure my little one was in good hands all over again.
The struggles of a single parent seem as if they will never end but Childcare Resources has helped me in so many ways but mostly because I am able to afford child care for my daughter. If it wasn’t for the help I receive monthly from them, I’m not sure what I would do."
Our Supplemental Child Care Program (SCCP) helped this mother and her young daughter have stability at a crucial time in both their lives.
