Parent Advocacy

As a parent, no one understands better the need for reliable, affordable high quality child care in allowing you to work, go to school and become economically self-sufficient. You are your family’s best advocate!

Sometimes families wait for years without receiving help with child care payments because the child care subsidy system is so severely underfunded. Hearing from you directly gives elected officials an authentic understanding of the help needed with the cost of child care. For ways on how to have your voice heard, contact us at 1 (916) 369-0191.

Parent Voices is a partnership of parents throughout California working to raise awareness about child care issues. Their mission is to ensure that local, state, and federal lawmakers keep child care a top priority.
