Real Help – Finally

January 29, 2010

After weeks of hearing speeches, studies, promises and the rest of the “we understand and we are trying to figure out what to help you with” types of blah blah… there is some real, honest to pete, concrete good stuff!

Sittercity, a network of all types of “sitters”, baby, elder care, dogs, house, as well as tutors and nannies, has a corporate site, and DoD is paying for all memberships for the military, including Guard and Reserve. The article on goes on to say:

The paid membership enables military families entry to a custom-built Defense Department Web site portal where they can match up caregivers to their situation; gain instant access to caregiver profiles that include background checks, references and reviews; and find military-certified care providers as well as caregivers who are military-subsidized and authorized access to a military installation.

Now, they won’t pay the sitter/nanny/tutor, but the work of background checks, and references, has been done. I love the part about subsidized (think, discounts or emergency care!) and access to an installation (if you live on a post that checks ID, that’s important)

Here’s where you go to sign up. Hey, DoD, I think you got one right here!

So, dear readers, if you use this site, would you let us know how it went? thanks!
