Removing Child Care as a Barrier to Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency – Core Grant

Founded by the Junior League of Waterloo-Cedar Falls 76 years ago, this child care program, with a second year of support from IWF, will assure availability of up to 20 full-time, year-round slots for infant or preschool children of single mothers who are seeking work, working, or in training; and whose incomes are under 200% of household poverty levels. Moreover, their children are provided with a nurturing environment and opportunities to acquire developmental skill levels necessary for school-readiness and future successes.
