Abstract:Findings from these analyses are useful in furthering our knowledge regarding the child care arrangements of working mothers. In addition to filling gaps in current knowledge, study findings are useful in informing social policies and interventions related to child care arrangements for working families, particularly by elaborating how characteristics of neighborhoods and welfare policies may affect the child care arrangements of social economically disadvantaged working mothers. The findings thus have implications for policy makers, community organizations, as well as social work practitioners to help disadvantaged working mothers balance work and family obligations in the United States. Implications for social work practice and policy are discussed.
