Buffalo Refugee Childcare Microenterprise Project

About the Program

Journey's End has partnered with the Child Care Resource Network of Western New York and Jewish Family Services to bring refugee-run childcare services to the Buffalo area through the Childcare Microenterprise Project. The project has trained and certified 30 women and 1 man in childcare health and safety methods, and has successfully opened 15 in-home childcare businesses. These businesses are New York State licensed and accept Erie County childcare subsidies. They are open to families of all backgrounds and languages. Here is a list of opened businesses.
