The goal of this project is to launch a child care cooperative owned and controlled by the parents and providers (which is already operating and has had a pilot care share running profitably for two years). It is providing quality care in an environment parents co-create with 2-3 other families, while providing a living wage of at least $17/hr to the providers. Each child care share will be located in family homes across Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods until it reaches profitability by October 2020 and will create 9 jobs, primarily for women of color.
