Child Care: Exploring Private and Public Sector Approaches. Hearing before the Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session (Irving, TX).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families.
Second in the Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families' national child care initiative, this hearing explored the entire range of issues surrounding child care in order to develop a set of specific recommendations for Congress. Appearing before the committee were representatives of corporations and voluntary agencies in Texas that have devised innovative ways to make child care more available for millions of working families and their children. The cooperative public-private solutions they have crafted include corporate development funds, city and county-supported vendor-voucher programs for family- and center-based care, resource and referral services, and after-school programs. Described are such programs as (1) child care services of the Southland Corporation and (2) Austin Families, Inc., a nonprofit oranization formed to develop resources for working parents and their children. The hearing record also includes a publicity flyer describing The Avance (Avan-sey) Educational Programs for Parents and Children; the Texas Department of Human Resources' Parents' Guide to Registered Family Homes (Form 2916, December, 1982); the report and recommendations of the Child Care Total Involvement Team of the Lincoln National Corporation; a description of programs of Neighborhood Centers, Inc.; and a United Way of Texas report on child day care in Texas.
