Mississippi Liaison Receives National Attention for Child Care Article

June 2013: Carol Burnett, ED of Mississippi Low Income Child Care Initiative Carol Burnett (pictured), who is the Executive Director for the Mississippi Low Income Child Care Initiative and the liaison for the Mississippi Annual Conference (UMC), wrote an article about the plight of low-income families to have affordable child care.  The article was published in The Nation and republished on the Moyers & Company website.  She explains how current policies and resources leave these families with "no-win decisions" regarding their efforts to provide their children safe and nurturing child care.  After reading the article, ask what your church (by itself or working with other churches and agencies) can do to assist low-income families in your communities.
