A Unified Voice, Your Voice
MAKING THE VOICE FOR CHILDREN HEARD
CCAK is calling on all reading this to help! We need you to support bringing the Child Care Assistance Program back in very specific ways.
The message to forward to elected officials to that they need to help lift the current freeze that is in place, and support what is now in the budget proposal for CCAP. Bringing back the old guidelines will assure thousands of working impoverished families who have lost access to again sign up. They will be able to meet a threshold of equal to or less than 150% of federal poverty level. And having this assistance will allow adults in such families to not have to quit their jobs. This is the message we need to share.
Here are some ways you can make the children’s voices on this issue be heard.
- Email or call your state rep and state senator. You can find this information by going to the website at LRC.gov and follow the prompts on their homepage.
- And you can choose to help the cause for the long haul and become a CCAK member. We need more caring people to become involved with us. It is simple to do so. Place your cursor on the Membership section at the top of this homepage, left click your mouse, and follow the prompts shared on the Membership Page. If you want to talk to a live person about becoming a part of our organization please call Steve at 502-855-0223.
CCAK has been busy in Frankfort the past few weeks. We participated in a February 12th hearing in front of the Budget Subcommittee on Human Resources. A board member spoke as did an assistant director of a Southside Christian Child Care center. To read more about this please click on the What’s Happening section of the website.
