Challenge

This project supplies child care tuition scholarships to metro Atlanta families who work hard, but earn little. Quality early education and child care makes a huge long-term impact on children from disadvantaged backgrounds. They grow up to do better in school and as adults they break out of the cycle of poverty. Donors to Sheltering Arms ensure that family income does not deprive a child of the nurturing care that will help her to make the most of the critical early years of development.

Solution

Sheltering Arms nurtures and educates children, strengthens families, and builds communities by providing 1) High quality child care and early education that prepares all young children to succeed in school, regardless of family income; 2) Comprehensive support services for families; 3) Professional development for early education and family services practitioners; 4) Community partnerships and collaborations to improve services for children and families.
15 children from low-income families in metro Atlanta, USA, will receive one-year scholarships for quality child care and early education that prepares children for school and allows parents to work.

Long-Term Impact

Good child care ensures a stable workforce today, while early education builds an educated workforce tomorrow. $1 spent on quality early child care and education saves as much as $17 in future costs of remediation, welfare, and incarceration.
