Bringing Child Care Costs Within Reach
The cost of childcare for an infant can exceed college tuition. To help low-income families cope, Maryland offers vouchers.
Steve Rohde, of the Maryland Family Network, describes recent changes to the state’s Child Care Subsidy program; with the changes, the vouchers are worth more, and more families are eligible for them. And Lindsay Midkiff, a single mom of three, describes how childcare vouchers have helped secure her family’s future and allowed her to work full-time.
