Child Care Centers, Child Care Subsidies, and Faith-Based Organizations

Preliminary Findings on Five Counties in 2003

Abstract

Faith-based organizations play an important role in the provision and support of child care services. This document summarizes preliminary findings from a forthcoming study on the extent to which child care centers in five counties in four states across the country are affiliated with faith-based organizations, housed in buildings belonging to faith-based organizations, or provide religious instruction, organized prayer or worship services. The research also explores whether faith-affiliated child care centers appear to face any barriers to participating in child care voucher programs funded through the federal Child Care and Development Fund.
