Child care can be a real challenge for our military families... but did you know, there are changemakers like Kayla Corbitt advocating for improvements? When it comes to affordable and equitable childcare, Kayla Corbitt is not only supporting OUR military families, but she is in support of all those who contribute to the military mission! She is the military spouse behind Operation Child Care as well as the executive director of Operation Child Care Project, the 501(c) 3 nonprofit and military family child care advocacy.

As an Army spouse, she knows firsthand how the Five & Thrive focus areas cut across all services, and with that in mind, she aims to provide ALL military families with child care through her advocacy, and programming. The Operation Child Care Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, strives to bridge the gap between the demand and availability of child care services through data-driven decision-making, authentic storytelling, and advocacy.

Kayla comments, "I met Sharene Brown through a Key Spouse event about a year ago. Was I supposed to be at the event? That is irrelevant 😉 It has been a joy to stay in communication with her as she advocates for families.

The Five & Thrive Initiative showcases what I have been working on for over a decade. To see Sharene Brown take these issues that military families have head-on tells us that they are listening; she is listening. Continue telling your stories, continue bringing us in at The Operation Child Care Project, and don't lose hope.

Affordable child care access affects every aspect of young families' lives, from employment to food security. Let us help."
