The Minority Female Single Parent Demonstration: Child Care Referral Options. A Technical Research Report. Into the Working world Series. Lessons from Research.
Handwerger, Sharon; And Others
This report presents information on the characteristics, fees, and revenue sources of the formal child care providers used by the four community-based organizations that operated programs in the Minority Female Single Parent demonstration programs initiated by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1982. The demonstration provided funding to selected community-based organizations to operate employment and training programs for minority single mothers. Programs were operated by the Atlanta Urban League in Atlanta, Georgia; the Center for Employment Training in San Jose, California; Opportunities Industrialization Center of Rhode Island in Providence; and Wider Opportunities for Women in Washington, D.C. The descriptive information presented in this report was collected from 151 child care providers to whom the four community-based organizations referred participating mothers who wanted to obtain formal child care. Particular attention was given to those providers that served preschool children and were open a sufficient number of hours each week to meet the child care needs of employed single mothers. Following an executive summary, sections of the report offer an introduction and overview, discuss the sample of child care providers, and report child care availability and characteristics, fees, and revenues. An appendix provides background information about sample selection. (RH)
