Families with children are struggling in our community. Look at the data. In Ohio, a mother of two earning about $27,000 a year makes too much money to become eligible for publicly funded child care. In fact, Ohio is one of the hardest states in the nation to qualify for child care assistance.
Undoubtedly, the Ohio experience is testament that we live in a nation that says it values children and families but doesn’t live up to that value.
