Abdul Saboor

Family Child Care Provider
Myra Abdul Saboor is a licensed family child care provider in Atlanta, Georgia. Myra is a member of Home Grown’s Leading from Home cohort one and the 2024 Policy Work Group.

"Even as a caregiver now, when I speak about my family child care business to my family, it's still not given the respect that it deserves ... Now, if I had a six-figure job, I would be cool, it would be fine. And leaving out every day and working from sun up to sundown, the reaction would be different, okay? So when I explain to my family what I do and I show pictures of the setup and whatnot, they're in awe like, 'Oh, really?' But still, the respect still is not there for this industry."
