Support and strengthen your community through a family-focused care platform.
Unlike other childcare benefits, Carefully supports community-based care that is inclusive of all types of organizations and their members, from students to workers, volunteers, patients, teachers, refugees, and more.
By simplifying the organization, planning, and coordination of cooperative care, Carefully gives community members the time and energy to focus, be more productive, more connected, and build a stronger, more resilient and empowered community overall.
Providing childcare options to your local community helps build a foundation for success. Anchor institutions are in a unique position to help people in their communities who have been historically disadvantaged and are working against the odds to achieve economic mobility.

“In the private sector, we see employers starting to look at the whole person and work-life needs as essential to employee success, but colleges and universities have not generally been thinking about their student body in this way…We are a little slow to respond to the idea that nontraditional students are the new norm.”
Anchor institutions are vital assets to their neighborhoods, towns, cities and regions. Increasingly, anchor institutions are expected to do more in their communities, and become active civic participants in improving health and well-being in their surroundings.
Ensuring student parents have access to affordable, quality, child care — which one study found more than tripled their likelihood of on-time graduation — would improve postsecondary success and economic security across generations.
