Women United

Thank you for joining us on International Women's Day
March 8, 2022

United Way of the Greater Capital Region and the Women United Affinity Group joined leaders, including Senator Michelle Hinchey, to highlight the need for state leaders to increase access to affordable, quality childcare.

Before the pandemic, childcare costs were a major barrier to families living near or below the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained & Employed) threshold. These costs were the leading factor in the increases to the basic survival budget for Capital Region households. During the pandemic 17% of households below the ALICE threshold reported quitting a job due to loss of childcare.

Thank you to Hudson Valley Community College, Bare Blends, and The Blake Annex for your support of today’s events.
