Child Care Funding Crisis DAY OF ACTION
Marillac St. Vincent Family Service Children, Parents, and staff joined with other child care providers and our advocacy partners at Illinois Action For Children for a Day of Action.

On Wednesday, March 11, we reminded Governor Bruce Rauner and our representatives in Springfield, just how important it is to protect funding to the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). The 300 million dollar budget shortfall threatens to crumble this important State program designed to help working families who are trying to better themselves, while enjoying the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their children are being well taken care of within a quality child care program, like what we offer at MSV.
We are continuing to post to social media with stories, photos, and videos, using the hashtag #SaveChildCare - help us get it trending by sharing our posts with your friends and families. And watch a short video message from the children of Marillac St. Vincent Family Services:
If you haven't already, there's no better time to call your representatives and make sure they're siding with the working families of Illinois.
Child care is the "KEY" to a bright future for our children
