EDWINS Family Center
We are excited to announce the upcoming opening of the EDWINS Family Center, anticipated for the Spring of 2023!
EDWINS Family Center will provide free high-quality child care to children of returning citizens in a safe, stable, and caring environment. Our hope is to continue to break the cycles of poverty and incarceration and give our students and their families all of the support necessary to succeed and thrive.
The Family Center will follow all regulations outlined by the state of Ohio and will serve children from infancy to age 11, Monday through Saturday until 10pm. The Center is located just one block away from EDWINS, providing easy access and pick-up for families.
Why a Family Center?
– Very few child care centers are open in the evening, preventing many parents working in the restaurant industry from finding safe places for their children to stay while at work.
– Families living at the poverty line spend 35% of their monthly income on childcare, a number way too high to be affordable.
– Historically, 79% of EDWINS students with children who begin the program do not complete it due to lack of childcare among other issues.
