The Child Care Funds’ Mission


The 1199SEIU/Employer Child Care Fund (the “Fund” or “CCF”) will establish child care and youth programs and related services for Fund-eligible 1199SEIU bargaining unit members (“Members”) in order to increase their access to quality, affordable child care and youth-related services and information. To assist parents in reconciling their work and family responsibilities, the Fund will provide programs and services that meet the particular needs of children from infancy through age 17.

The Fund shall be guided by the following principles:

  • Nurturing Educational Environments. Safe, responsive and educationally stimulating environments best serve the child care needs of members and their children.
  • Cultural Diversity. Racial, ethnic and economic diversity foster cooperative experiences for children and employees.
  • Fiscal Responsibility. Fund assets shall be spent for the benefit of as many children as possible while maintaining quality and meeting all regulatory requirements.
  • Union/Management Participation. Cooperation among all constituents maximizes the effectiveness of the Fund.
