From: Carol H., Davidson, NC

For seven years I have served on the board of the one of the only sliding-fee day cares in our county. As the economy got worse, more day cares closed, but the need for day cares rose as people's hours changed and women with young children returned to the workforce earlier than intended. Child care in Mecklenburg County averages $900 per month, putting it out of reach of even teachers. And the funds for subsidized child care shrank as demand grew.
