Put Children First as an Event Sponsor of Catholic Charities Maine's
21st Annual Golf Classic
The demand for affordable, quality childcare is great, and we need the support of businesses like yours in order to fulfill our mission.
For more than 50 years, Catholic Charities Maine has been proud to provide safe, nurturing, professional and affordable childcare, with a mission-driven approach that puts children — not profits — first. Our two childcare centers, St. Louis in Biddeford and St. Elizabeth’s in Portland, are nationally accredited and rated Step 4 — Maine’s highest childcare center ranking. Your support helps ensure every child is given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential!
Here’s what the numbers look like for many low-income, working families in Maine:
Infant Care: $275/week = $14,300/year
Toddler Care: $267/week = $13,884/year
Full-time Job: $12.75/hour = $26,520/year
If this were your budget, can you imagine trying to factor in housing, food, healthcare, utilities and gas?
What if you had more than one child?
These formative years are critical, and studies show that children who attend a high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not.
Please help nurture Maine’s youngest minds by lending your support today!
