Our mission is to provide affordable and accessible high-quality childcare while empowering families to reach their fullest potential. Contributions to Candle of Hope allow us to keep tuition rates low and offer competitive wages to help retain and attract highly-skilled educators.
Families have had to choose between leaving their job to stay at home or find care to look after their child(ren). Securing a space at a center, that offers availability and affordability, for working families has been a crisis, globally, for decades. As the pandemic continues, the problem grows significantly.
Unfortunately, women have bared the brunt of this responsibility and are among the highest percentage of unemployment claims and withdrawal from the workforce. Over 60% of Fannie Battle families are single mothers and have been since our inception. If ever there was a time that we could understand what it was like when Miss Fannie Battle started our organization, it is now. But is because of the support received from our donors and community that we are proud to, safely, live our mission during this
much-needed time for affordable and accessible care in our nation.
From the families and staff, thank you for your support and dedication to make a lasting impact in our community today.
