One of mommies' favorite resources is lending a helping hand to military families!
Genevieve Thiers: Michelle Obama and the current administration are committed to improving the lives of military families -- a few days ago the Department of Defense officially announced the Sittercity Corporate Program as a solution to help hundreds of thousands of military families nationwide. Sittercity is the nation's largest and most trusted online source for finding quality local babysitters, nannies, elder care providers, dog walkers and more -- with over a million nationwide caregiver profiles.
The DoD has fully funded this program for all members of the Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force. The Sittercity Corporate Program provides military families with instant access to caregiver profiles, which include background checks, pictures, references, reviews, a four-step screening process and proprietary matching technology to help families hand-select the perfect caregiver for their family. In addition, servicemembers will be able to connect with military-certified care providers on Sittercity as well as caregivers who are military subsidized and authorized access to a military installation.
Eligible servicemembers and their families can activate their paid membership in less than two minutes by visiting www.sittercity.com/dod.
