Connect4Care Kids Offers Child Care at Your Fingertips

United Way for Southeastern Michigan and the City of Detroit created the online Connect4Care Kids tool to help low income families with child care options.

It can sometimes be really overwhelming and hard to find affordable, convenient childcare. That’s why the United Way for Southeastern Michigan and the city of Detroit have teamed up to offer a new online tool, Connect4Care Kids, that not only shows families the many child care options available, but also links low-income families with resources that might help them pay for that care.

In fact, more than half of Detroit families with children 5 and younger qualify for some type of assistance with childcare costs.

Connect4Care Kids is simple to use. Parents and caregivers search for childcare locations that best fit their situation, can easily check eligibility and immediately start the application for programs that offer assistance.

“Access to early childhood learning and care are vital to helping children and families thrive,” Darienne Hudson, president and CEO, United Way for Southeastern Michigan, says in a news release. “Connect4Care Kids is a comprehensive tool that will help parents connect with care options across the city. It empowers busy parents to search one site for care options from their phone in a matter of a few minutes.”
