Child Care Assistance: Helping Families Work. Annual Report, 2001-2002.
Greater Minneapolis Day Care Association, MN.
This annual report of the Greater Minneapolis Day Care Association (GMDCA) details the accomplishments of the organization for 2001-2002. The report begins with a letter from the executive director focusing on need to continue funding for the Basic Sliding Fee Child-Care Assistance program to help low- and moderate-income working families. The report then describes how the GMDCA responds to family needs by offering child care assistance on a sliding fee scale. The experiences of three families are highlighted, one family in which both parents work and receive child care assistance, a one-parent family that waited 12 months for child care assistance, and a 2-parent family receiving assistance through the At-Home-Infant Care program to allow the mother to provide at-home care for their premature infant. Charts portray the annual income and expenses for a family of 4 to illustrate an annual deficit of over $3,000. A second chart illustrates the industries employing families that receive child care assistance through GMDCA. The report then lists GMDCA services provided in 2001-2002 and includes a financial statement of the GMDCA. Completing the annual report is a list of board members, volunteers, and donors. (KB)
