    All Our Kin

    11 volunteers - sign up to volunteer

    All Our Kin supports family child care businesses in New Haven. These businesses are among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis and will require both immediate and long-term financial support to survive. We are looking for one or two individuals to interview family child care educators by phone about the impact of COVID-19 on their businesses. The interviewers will transcribe and in some cases translate the interviews. Interviews will be used to support communications as well as state and federal advocacy for supports to sustain family child care businesses.
