What is Parent Voices?

Parent Voices is a project of the California Child Care Resource and Referral Network (the Network). This chapter organization works throughout California to improve access to child care for all families in their communities, in California, and in the United States.

Parent Voices is a partnership of parents throughout California. A Statewide Organizer works out of the Network, and local chapters are housed at child care resource and referral agencies (CCR&R’s). Parent Voices combines leadership development, advocacy, and community organizing in its efforts to increase funding, improve quality, and provide better access to child care.

Our Mission

We are a parent-run, parent-led grassroots organization fighting to make quality child care accessible and affordable to all families.

Our Core Values

Parent Voices believes in:

  • working toward social change by developing new community leaders to advocate for child care and respond to emerging issues
  • having parents and child care consumers identify our issues, solutions, and courses of action
  • acting with passion and resolve, using a variety of strategies
  • having strong, articulate parents govern the policies of the organization

Child Care for All

Join Parent Voices in advocating for quality and affordable child care. Child care is an important component to the development of young children and to the economic security of families.
