Every day Always Home sees the vital role that childcare plays in keeping a family stably housed. But childcare is expensive. The average annual cost of infant/toddler childcare in Connecticut exceeds $15,000, a price tag beyond the means of most low- and moderate-income families.
Always Home's Childcare Solutions Program helps families resolve a childcare emergency before it spirals into income loss or unemployment and an episode of housing instability. We work with parents to maximize available resources and develop a dependable childcare network. Short-term financial assistance with the cost of daycare, summer camp and before- and after-school care is available to families who need to bridge the cost of childcare until longer-term solutions are established.
With generous support from The Whaler's Inn, children are given valuable enrichment opportunities while parents maintain steady employment and stable housing.
