COVID-19 Impact

Roughly 75% of child care providers in Arizona, including school programs, faced at least a temporary closure.

Currently, almost 90% of family, friend, and neighbor caregiver applications that ASCC has received for the emergency fund have had the employment of someone in their household impacted by COVID-19.

Emergency Fund

With the support of Home Grown, the Association for Supportive Child Care will award $300 gift cards
to 366 Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) home-based child care providers across the State of Arizona. This will provide economic support to caregivers and gather data on the impact of COVID-19 on employment status in their households.

“We are committed to our mission of supporting anyone who positively impacts kids and are grateful to be collaborating with other dedicated and passionate organizations in Arizona. These home-based child care providers care for more than 60% of our kids under the age of five year-round and we need to strengthen and support them during this crisis.”
