Family Child Care Provider
Benu Chhabra is a Licensed Family Child Care Provider based in Concord, California.

"Child care is needed. It was needed before this [pandemic] and it is needed now. But what is going to be done for us? I have talked to many providers. We [home-based providers] don't have any benefits as other jobs do. We don't have any health benefits and what we do is one of the most essential jobs."
