Chicago First Responders Need YOU
While first responders, healthcare professionals, and other essential personnel work on the frontlines during the fight against the spread of COVID-19, their families are in dire need of child care during this unprecedented time.
You can help by volunteering to provide child care for the family of one of these workers keeping our city going through Sittercity’s “Chicago Responds” program. Launched in partnership with the City of Chicago, the “Chicago Responds” program will connect members of the public and public-sector employees like yourselves with first responders who are looking for volunteers to provide sitter services in their homes. The program will also give all Chicago parents working as first responders free access to Sittercity Premium. Please consider donating your time to these local heroes and their families.
Based in Chicago, Sittercity has been digitally connecting families with quality child care since 2001. They provide tools to help caregivers easily connect with local families including:
- Detailed Profiles
- Secure Messaging
- Interview Scheduling
- Background Check Options
Thank you for considering volunteering your time. Chicago and our first responders need your care and compassion now more than ever.
