Care That Works is a Boston-based pilot program organizing child care for families who need child care for “nonstandard” schedules to enter and stay in good union careers such as in construction and hospitality.

Our Pilot is starting with early hour child care and will expand in time to accommodate other shift needs. We are building a network of licensed Family Child Care providers who can open as early as 5:00 a.m. for parents with early morning shifts.

This form does not sign you up for care, but after you complete the form you will receive a call from the Pilot to confirm your eligibility and connect you to providers in our network.

Please feel free to share this survey with others who have nonstandard hour child care needs.

Contact Sarah Shorey Adams, at if you have any questions.
