Employing in-depth interview-based exploratory study, the project will examine to understand low-income working mothers using relative care overall, and locate their distinctive perceptions on asking for childcare to relatives by race/ethnicity. The outcome will draw recommendations to social workers in low-income rural areas who need to help increase the self-sufficiency of low-income and ethnic-minority families. At the same time, this study will offer insight to policy-makers who are interested in improving childcare issues and job efficiency of low-income families in rural areas.
