Anchor Institutions

Support and strengthen your community through a family-focused care platform.
  • Increase childcare access

  • Improve outcomes

  • Build resiliency

  • Empower families

Carefully is a platform for strengthening communities.

Unlike other childcare benefits, Carefully supports community-based care that is inclusive of all types of organizations and their members, from students to workers, volunteers, patients, teachers, refugees, and more.

By simplifying the organization, planning, and coordination of cooperative care, Carefully gives community members the time and energy to focus, be more productive, more connected, and build a stronger, more resilient and empowered community overall.

A simple way to make a difference

Providing childcare options to your local community helps build a foundation for success. Anchor institutions are in a unique position to help people in their communities who have been historically disadvantaged and are working against the odds to achieve economic mobility.
