Refugee Child Care Training Program

This program builds upon a project funded by IWF in 2015 and 2016. The goal of this highly successful program is to assist refugee women to increase their financial stability by becoming registered in-home child care providers. As a result, seventy-one women from 15 language groups have been assisted with child care registration requirements and/or training; nearly $176,000 was earned by 19 active providers in 2015. Our continued support will help existing providers keep current with DHS registration and provide training and start-up technical and financial assistance for 16 new providers.
