CITY LEADERS ANNOUNCE FREE CHILDCARE PLAN TO HELP THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE COVID-19 RESPONSE
Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby on Friday announced the launch of a free Essential Worker Childcare program for first responders, health care workers and essential City of Sacramento employees.
Starting Monday, childcare for 350 children (ages 5 to 12) will be up and running at eight community centers throughout the city. The program will be administered by the City’s Youth, Parks & Community Enrichment Department. The children will be kept in separate groups of 10 or less that will not intermingle.
“I am very proud of our city during this moment in time,” Steinberg said. “We are an organized and committed city, committed to helping everyone through this extraordinary experience known as the coronavirus crisis.”
