Story of the Year
stories throughout the City, but here is true story of good work.
Ultimately, our work is about people.
single father with
infant twins is currently receiving high quality care at the
Maternity Care Coalition. He doesn't want to remove his children from this excellent program, but he also needs more child care to be able to work and leave the shelter.
BELL ECE Specialist told him about childcare subsidy, where he could keep his children in the program but use Pennsylvania's subsidy support for an after-hours care program. Thanks to the policy of "
presumptive eligibility," which prioritizes family in shelters, his children were accepted and he was able to accept a job that will soon help him leave the shelter.
