Transcript TASK FORCE RETORT: CHILD CARE We are very happy that Child Care was chosen to be one of the four priorities far this next year. We feel, when It comes to needing volunteers far "shit work," we do not want to take any away from tho other priorities going on at the sar.e time. If we have to go and lobby for the E.R.A. In Austin, we need to put that struggle as our main priority at that time. Also, we feel wo can easily work for Child Care along with some of the other priorities. If we are working on an employment suit, then our ta3k farce can be working also, informing the employer that they can help provide equal opportunity by subsidizing a child care center for their employees, whose need will mostly be met by the women employed there. We want to work with the Women's Center's goals by providing a good children's playroom far our center, and providing a day care referral service. And, we also have an Idea for fund- raising. The National N.O.W.'s Child Care Task Farce has a "Lollypop People" slide show available, and we can purchase children's books with 30% off the retail price. We are now busy on the day care referral service. In the last two months, since we have been coordinators of this task farce, we have received several calls at the Women's Center far this sorvice. With our lack of knowledge at this time, we have boon very sorry we haven't been able to help these people very much. We plan to change this right now,' Questionnaires were already sent out last summer, before we were even coordinators. Now, we desperately need volunteers to help us call these day care centers to see if they got the questionnaires, and to remind them to reply soon. Then, the volunteers need to visit these centers and fill out our checklist. If you do not know what to look far in a day care center, this check list will tell you. We are In the process of making up lists' of day care centers In the different zip code areas of Houston. So, I hope to have people take a list of centers that are close to their homo and/or work, and to do what they can on their 1/2 or full days off, before or after working hours, and maybe during lunch hour. Some centers are open on Saturdays or in the evening. Since there are almost 400 day care centers in our area—profit and non-profit-- we will need a lot more than k people working on this project. Please call Dianna Vejtasa or Elena Moore, and give us your name and phone number If you can help us. You can also sign up at the Women's Center. We will then call you, arrange a time far everyone to come to the Women's Center to get their lists of centers and checklists needed. We plan to ask far $225 at the next business meeting to purchase the "Lollypop People" sllde show and the children's books. The children's books and records will make good Christmas presents far relatives and friends, and spread the word about nan-sexist book* fir children. So we do want to get them before December. We had our first task farce meeting in September, Peggy Felix told us about her interview with Janis Armstrong of the Child Care Council of Greater Houston, Inc. The members of our task farce want to know mare about child care facilities in Houston. We plan to meet once a month. We hope everyone is enjoying the newly-decorated chlldren'3 playroom at the Women's Center. Elena Moore and her rap group painted the walls and doors one evening last September, and Dianna Vejtasa added the letters and tree.' Mare toys were donated by Elena, Dianna, and Linda England. The broken, dangerous toys were thrown away. At the August business meeting, the Houston NOW chapter voted unanimously to be a part of the Ad Hoc Task Farce far Children, chaired by Marie Cseri and to support the proposal to the Kaye far an Office far Children. This proposal has not been submitted to the city yet. A program meeting by the Ad Hoc Task Farce far Children la being planned far October. We hope to get more organizations and agencies to support the proposal at this time. Our next step will be to submit the proposal to our Mayor. Dianna Vejtasa Elena Moore page 2
