“You can’t expect a family with young children to get on their feet and get jobs without child care.” – Patty Siegel, executive director, California Child Care Resource & Referral Network

Join the Women’s Economic Security Campaign* (WESC) for their next webinar, which will share the findings of their most recent report: Child Care Matters: Building Economic Security for Low-Income Women. Without affordable, reliable child care, the report notes, low-income mothers have little chance of finding good jobs and staying employed. Read more about the challenges facing low-income mothers in the current economic climate in this New York Times article.

WESC aims to bring the struggles and perspectives of low-income single mothers to the top of the public policy agenda.
