New York Council Budget Hearings Heat Up With Issues Of Childcare Cuts
May 23rd, 2012

“Child care is the underpinning for any kind of economic stability, along with housing,” said Lisa Caswell of the Day Care Council of New York as reported by NY1. “If you take away the child care, you not only deprive the child, you put the child at risk, but you primarily destabilize the whole family. It’s obvious.”
