WeeCare rebrands to Upwards, solving care for good.

The Future of Family Care is Upwards: A Message from the CEO

Today marks a very special moment in WeeCare’s story. We are introducing our new identity: Upwards!

In the year 2017, we embarked on a mission to make quality childcare accessible to all families, regardless of their circumstances.

Over the past six years, our team has diligently built the most loved childcare network in America, extending support to every neighborhood in the nation. We’ve worked hard to redefine the landscape of childcare subsidies, simplifying the process for families in need. We’ve been able to provide hundreds of thousands of families with employer-sponsored childcare benefits. We are honored to support U.S. Army families by providing top-notch childcare that empowers them to fulfill their service commitments.

In fact, we’ve become a pioneer in leveraging technology to empower everyone involved in solving the childcare crisis.

When I speak of “everyone,” I think of the real faces behind these stories:

  • A dedicated childcare provider in Southern California who can now access government subsidy payments in a matter of hours through our technology, in contrast to the months-long process it used to be. This means she can continue supporting the children of local farmers who work tirelessly to feed our communities.
  • A U.S. Army Reservist in Iowa, now assured that his child is in safe hands during his weekend drill training, thanks to our partnership with the U.S. Army, providing peace of mind to his whole family.
  • A mother in Tennessee, empowered to return to work post-pandemic, securing quality childcare through her employer’s partnership with us, along with a valuable care tuition stipend.
  • An HR team at a grocery chain, taking pride in supporting their employees with accessible childcare benefits, resulting in a 30% increase in employee retention.

These stories aren’t just anecdotes; they are the results of the transformative work that WeeCare has woven into the fabric of our community. As we delved deeper into childcare, it became increasingly apparent that our mission to revolutionize care for families needed a broader vision. That’s how Upwards was born.

While our commitment to addressing the childcare crisis remains unshakable, Upwards signifies our evolution into a broader mission to revolutionize care for the whole family, comprehensively. Upwards envisions a world where families are free from the anxiety of securing and affording quality care, and where caregivers are empowered to serve their communities without compromising their own well-being.

With the trust and support of our partners, the power of technology, and the dedication of our team, we are poised to transform this vision into a reality. Our pledge is to work collectively to construct a more equitable and just care system that benefits every individual.

We believe technology holds the key to rejuvenating the entire care sector. By identifying those in need of care and connecting them with caregivers who possess the right skills, we are forging real-time connections. In times of caregiver scarcity, our data-driven insights will stimulate the creation of new avenues of care.

Upwards isn’t just a name change; it’s a commitment to solving care for good and enhancing the lives of families everywhere. Join us as we embark on this exciting new chapter.

The future is Upwards!
