Description

Abstract

There are many different issues facing the American welfare system. One of the fastest growing concerns is that of young mothers in poverty. This concern grows as the teen pregnancies and out of wedlock births rise, and as women gain their financial independence. “The number of single parents with children under the age of 18 doubled from 3.8 million in 1970 to 9.4 million in 1988, and single-parents now make up 27% of all family groups with children (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1989)”. One of the major concerns of young mothers in poverty is that of child care. There is a tremendous need for adequate, reliable, cheap childcare. The problem is that there is really no good inexpensive means of caring for children while the mother works.
