Bay State Banner: Coalition Seeks Solutions to Vexing Childcare Challenges

No parent should have to worry about being able to secure high-quality, affordable childcare, but all too often, they do.

We recently co-sponsored a briefing for state lawmakers on the issue, along with our partner, Brookview House. The Bay State Banner attended, offering insightful analysis and reporting: “one set of interconnected problems is the high cost of childcare, long waitlists for state-funded vouchers that subsidize this cost for low-income families, and the difficulty in qualifying for a voucher in advance of starting job training, school or employment.”

One of the biggest gaps is our system’s inability to accommodate families with nontraditional schedules. We’ll continue to work with partners and lawmakers to take steps to tackle this important issue.
