Family Child Care Provider
Susan is a Family Child Care Provider in Arizona and a member of Home Grown's Leading from Home initiative.

"My overall goal is to empower and strengthen family child care providers!  I feel it's important to help family child care providers find and use their voices. One of the most difficult things we face is the severe lack of support and acknowledgment for the work we do with our children, families and within our community regarding caring for children."
