Drop-In Childcare to Keep Families Self-Sufficient

by YWCA of Boulder County
Drop-In Childcare to Keep Families Self-Sufficient


The YWCA’s Children’s Alley helps families retain economic self-sufficiency by serving as the only drop-in, temporary childcare center serving the front range

total raised
monthly donors


Children’s Alley serves primarily low-income families, therefore, fees are based on a sliding scale to ensure everyone may participate. Free childcare is provided to women staying at local domestic violence shelters. Children, who are often facing crisis situations at home, benefit from having a stable, nurturing environment.


By providing affordable, drop-in childcare to struggling families, parents receive the support they need to retain employment, look for jobs, seek housing or other vital activities.

Long-Term Impact

Drop-in, childcare enables parents to retain employment (especially those who work non-traditional hours), ensures that children are not left home alone and provides care for families facing crisis situations.
