Access to child care is a critical work support Texas women need.
In many cases, the lack of affordable child care can force women who want or need to work to remain outside of the job market.
2.5 million Texas mothers are working mothers. Child care is critical for job sustainability.
48% of Texans live in a child care desert –– as do 55% of Hispanic families and 63% are rural families.
Infant care, annually, in Texas is nearly as expensive as college tuition.
