SFTA Advocacy Priorities

SFTA and its members advocate for public investments in family support services and early care and education. Parenthood’s financial burden stresses low-earning caregivers. Without action, parents leave jobs, couples avoid having kids, and child care remains unaffordable. Investing in our youngest community members has long-term benefits. This one-pager aims to highlight the importance of funding Child Care Resource & Referral agencies (CCR&Rs) and Family Resource Centers (FRCs) to further strengthen the quality of care for children and provide support to families and providers.
