Faith Leaders In Rochester Concerned Over Child Care Cuts

12.06.13 | Bob Price

Faith-leaders in Rochester, New York are worried what cuts to child care subsidies will do to the working poor in Monroe County. A group of religious organizations called the Children's Interfaith Collaborative held a press conference calling on the county to reverse a proposed 1-point-3 million dollar cut in child care subsidies next year and add another 6-hyndred-thousand to the program.  Monroe County already spends more than any other county outside New York City on child care subsidies.  Faith leaders say a lack of access to quality day care for working families can exacerbate problems for children later in life.
