Saturday’s Eviction Ban is Set to Expire, Increasing the Risk of Homelessness for N.C. Families with Children
Saturday’s nationwide eviction ban is set to expire. President Biden is asking Congress to extend the ban. Congress needs to hear from you! We advocate for young children to be in high quality early learning programs. We also must advocate for them to be in safe and secure homes. Both housing and early childhood programming are essential for our children and families!
It’s Time to Bring Child Care Assistance and Safe and Secure Housing Together for Young Children in Families Experiencing Homelessness
Additional federal funds have arrived. Guidance documents are now available. It’s time to expand the partnerships necessary to ensure young children in families experiencing homelessness have access to high-quality child care and housing. It’s doable. It’s time to prioritize it.
The pathway to economic recovery depends not only on jobs from North Carolina’s new technology partners but innovative solutions for our state’s child care challenges. Who better than our new technology employers to model the way?

North Carolinian children need teachers with early childhood education to help them learn. Just say no to SB570.
