Care.com to Begin Offering Discounts to Military Families

04.12.11

Care.com has begun offering 15% discounts to all military families looking for high-quality caregiving services through their website. Care.com recognizes the unique needs of military families and has dedicated a section of their site to provide tips, support and access to great child care.

Care.com will also feature stories from military families who found the caregiving services they were looking for:

“As a working mom and wife of an Army Lieutenant Colonel preparing for deployment to Afghanistan, I was drawn to Care.com’s online security and deep provider pool,” Lila Vizzard, a Care.com member said. “As a maternal and child health professional, a service that recognized the importance of providing security gave me immediate confidence and peace of mind. I was both delighted and impressed with not only the number of Care.com providers in my area, but more importantly, that so many of the providers were from the military community. We’re now delighted to have the support of an amazing provider, Kim, whom we found through Care.com”

All a military family needs to do to find caregivers in their area is enter their ZIP code, service and pay rate into a care.com search. From there they’ll receive detailed background check and reference interview reports to add the peace of mind Care.com is known for.

“Care.com knows that in the military, families serve too,” Sheila Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com, said.  “We are delighted to launch this new feature on Care.com to provide military families with a single online resource where they can find great care, flexible job opportunities, a like-minded community that will enable them to connect with each other, and customized articles and opinion pieces to help them manage their specific care needs.”

Since being founded in 2006, Care.com has become the largest and fastest growing service used by families to find high-quality caregivers. Learn more about the types of media planning and buying services we provide to Care.com and the other internet-based companies we’ve helped grow.
