The Chicano Federations Women’s Small Business Development Program is a childcare training program that provides women with the skills and resources to start a home-based childcare business through an eight-week course that prepares them for the states licensing requirements.

Often, women from diverse communities struggle to find ways to provide for their families and to meet the increasing living costs.
