Making A Case For Child Care: An Evaluation Of A Pennsylvania-Based Intervention Called Child Care Matters

Ambitious and multi-faceted, Child Care Matters began with the goal of producing a basis to achieve systemic change in child care policy through a collaboration of key local child care organizations. The ultimate purpose: making affordable, accessible, and quality child care a fundamental and well-accepted value.

CCM made significant progress towards its initial goals.
