Child care has become the largest monthly expense for families with young children—more than housing or health care. As a result, families struggle to work and to afford basic needs, pushing them deeper into poverty, which can impact children's well-being. 

To address this barrier to financial stability, we must better understand the problem and take steps to begin to address it. Join us for a conversation about the complexity of child care, the barriers of child care, and the child care solution before the Iowa legislature.

We hope you are able to join us. If you have questions, please contact me at
