    The cost of childcare nearly triples for veterans The cost of childcare nearly triples for veterans and becomes a financial barrier for veterans pursuing career and educational goals. For single parents, reliable childcare can truly make or break a family’s wellbeing. Here at FFWW, we have the only childcare assistance program available to women veterans and their children. 

Valerie, an Army veteran and single parent found herself struggling to afford childcare and reached out to us for help:

“Thank you, you have no idea what this means to us! I was so scared, for both of us, until finding your organization. I was for certain that I’d need to drop out of school. You are the reason we are going to get through this.” 

You can read Valerie’s story by visiting the link in our bio.
