Dear Sisters & Brothers,

It is difficult to find child care right now, isn’t it?

Frontline workers don’t need added stress while trying to help those affected by COVID-19. Fortunately, you now have access to a free tool to connect you to nearby, affordable, licensed child care providers—who are members of UDW, AFSCME 3930—that have openings right now. It’s called Carina. Browse nearby child care options with openings right now.

There are hundreds (and growing) of child care options in California on Carina right now ready to talk to you about providing care for your children. Providers are UDW members in your community who have come together to raise up the quality of child care and want to meet the urgent needs of members like you.

We know many of you are also struggling with the idea of paying for child care. COVID-19 has created unprecedented uncertainty. California has its own resources and depending on your situation, there may be ways to receive help paying for care. Carina can direct you to the available resources.

In unity,
