Employment Webinar Series: Supporting Families Experiencing Homelessness Through the Child Care Development Fund

Thursday, July 18 | 2:30pm ET | 1:30pm CT | 12:30pm MT | 11:30am PT

Description:

The Child Care Development Fund is the primary federal funding source for subsidized child care. For families experiencing homelessness, this funding can help provide a safe space for children while their parents are at work. More importantly, it helps individuals retain much needed employment to create housing stability. Carie Bires from Ounce of Prevention Fund will discuss how states are utilizing the Child Care Development Fund to support individuals in not only gaining, but retaining employment. 

Speakers:  

Carie Bires, MSW, Senior Policy Manager, Illinois Policy

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.
