News Updates


CAPPA, with the help of Variant Strategies, are taking action and raising awareness on the severe lack of funds available for child care for families who really need it, specifically for private child care homes and centers, and for providers. The inability for families to access early child care due to loss of jobs, promotes a cycle of poverty that hurts families and destabilizes the economy. Join the movement to improve child care conditions in California and call on lawmakers to invest in child care for families who need it.
