One recent recipient of a Council child care scholarship is a grandmother who has custody of her 4-year-old grandson. With this help, the child is now in a regulated child care program, and his grandma reports that his social skills are improving! Donate today and your donation will be doubled by CClean Commercial Cleaning.
Nearly 150 parents, child care providers, nonprofit leaders, and business executives gathered virtually at our annual Westchester County Child Care Advocacy (Half) Hour in October, to call for continued child care funding in the 2024 Westchester County budget. Joined by Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins, Board of Legislators Chairman Vedat Gashi, and Legislator David Imamura, we updated the audience about the tremendous positive impact of the Westchester Works Scholarship Program and asked elected officials to maintain its funding (about $3 million for the awards) and raise the income eligibility cap so that more families are eligible. We also called on attendees to raise their voices in other venues… and now we’re asking you!
