Helping Essential Workers Find & Afford Childcare During COVID-19
Congratulations to BridgeCare’s Jamee Herbert, CEO and co-founder, and JC Kirst, CTO and co-founder, who received a $100,000 investment from Chloe Capital. With monthly childcare costing more than the average mortgage payment, it’s no surprise that over 50 percent of millennials have already left a job due to caregiving challenges. BridgeCare is a workplace benefit that helps parents find childcare and afford it by using pre-taxed dollars. Employers also save on payroll taxes, and reduce costs associated with losing valuable talent.
When the pandemic hit, BridgeCare’s search software was repurposed to help essential workers at government agencies across the country, including the state of Texas.
Now you can pay it forward by introducing Jamee to your HR director. Contact us >

Paul Singh extended an impact investment of $25,000 to Amanda DoAmaral, founder and CEO of Fiveable.
