In Illinois:
There are 389,790 children under age 6 living in poverty.

Child care funding serves only 10 percent of federally eligible children.

Only 30 percent of 3-year-olds and 37 percent of 4-year-olds are enrolled in a public preschool program.

Support children today, to build a brighter future for all of us tomorrow.
