You Work Hard. We Want to Help.
ChildCare Works is an employee-sponsored childcare benefit program currently being implemented at employers in four localities throughout Southwest Virginia. Through this program, parents of children ages birth through five can receive assistance with their licensed childcare costs. ChildCare Works aims to serve as a long-term solution to the growing problems of employee retention and attraction. Sustainability plans are in place to provide technical assistance and expert advice to participating employers on tax benefits while building the total costs of this benefit program into employers’ budgets over the course of two years.
This project was funded in part by GO Virginia, a state-funded initiative administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) that strengthens and diversifies Virginia's economy and fosters the creation of higher-wage jobs in strategic industries.
