Refugee Child Care Training and Parent Education Program

This program builds on a project currently funded by IWF. LSI’s Child Care Provider Business Development program assists refugee women in increasing their financial stability by becoming registered in-home child care providers and expanding the number of safe and culturally appropriate places to provide child care for working parents. As a result, 47 providers from 14 language groups have been trained and state registered and 90 refugees have gone to work. LSI plans to continue this program, assist with re-registration of providers, and offer refugee parenting support.
