Child care teachers and center directors know all too well that it is hard for our families to afford to live and work in Alameda County. Too many of us can’t provide basic necessities for our families, most centers struggle to pay us a living wage, and many parents can’t afford quality care.

Raising Alameda is an effort of local child care teachers, directors, providers, parents, and organizations to keep our communities livable, particularly for families who rely on child care. We are joining together to more effectively advocate for needed state and local investment in our child care system.
