Children’s Advocacy Alliance Names Holly Welborn as Executive Director

Nevada ranks a dismal 47th in child well-being among all states, with the cost of child care a big factor.

Married couples with children in Nevada pay a bigger percentage of their income for child care than anywhere else in the nation.

About 28,000 Nevada children had families that dealt with big job-related disruptions in the previous year – meaning someone in the family quit a job, didn’t take a job or had to greatly change their job – because of child-care problems.

These findings are from the 2023 Kids Count Data Book, an annual report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a charitable organization focused on child welfare. It was released Wednesday.
