Missouri U.S. Army Reserve soldiers get childcare help for drill weekends, annual training

The U.S. Army Reserve has launched a pilot program to help soldiers in the Kansas City area get childcare. Reservists will be able to find help through a company called WeeCare, which has more than 100-thousand providers nationwide.

Colonel Ellen Coddington, the Reserve’s Family Program Director, says there’s no cost to the soldiers who use the program.

 “Their quality of life and their well-being is actually first and foremost for us,  The Army Reserve wanted reliable safe childcare for our soldiers so that our soldiers can have peace of mind while they’re fulfilling their military obligations.”

Coddington says the Kansas City area was chosen for the test program because of an adequate number of soldiers and childcare options to support the program.
