Meet the Care.com Mom Force
One of the fun parts about running a company that matches families with the best possible care providers is hearing the success stories from both sides and getting positive feedback about our service.
To help families find the providers they, we've recruited dozens of women—both working and stay-at-home moms—to join Care.com as a review committee, judging the quality of our providers and serving as a gauntlet of sorts, deciding who gets to be a Care.com babysitter, nanny, home health aide, pet sitter, tutor or housekeeper.
We call them our Mom Force, and they certainly are a force to be reckoned with!
These ambitious and passionate women carefully review each and every profile, and work with the individual providers to enhance their pages and standing within our service, also helping them to fill any gaps in their listed experience, qualifications, or references. They also check every job post, joining with our members to make sure our community is safe and secure.
At Care.com, it's our mission to provide families with the best possible child care, elder care, educational help, pet care, and home care, and we couldn't fulfill this mission without the dedication and commitment of our Mom Force.
It's with great pleasure that I introduce you to just a small fraction of this powerful team.
Read on to meet the Care.com Mom Force and hear their stories!

I am a stay-at-home mother and wife to my wonderful husband, Jack. After graduating from college in 1991, I landed my first job in the banking industry. In 1997, we bought our first house and soon after my daughter Emily arrived. Financially, I needed to work and enjoyed my job. As a systems analyst, my supervisor was very supportive in allowing me to work from home three days a week, while my younger sister provided care for my daughter on the other two days.
In 2000, I decided it was time to stay at home to support my growing family, and my son Jack was born in 2001. As time went on, I desperately wanted to use my knowledge and skills and finally work again! Thanks to Care.com, I was given that opportunity. On a daily basis, I'm able to assist with reviewing provider profiles—which gives me the flexibility to work from home and take care of my family. What a great company to be a part of!

In September 2007, my triplet boys went off to kindergarten and I became a member of Care.com's Mom Force. As a mother of three rambunctious boys, a dog, a cat, and even a messy house, I review each profile as if I were looking for a provider myself. I am happy to report I have come across many qualified providers!
Working at Care.com is a wonderful experience. There is such camaraderie and the flexibility they offer keeps me available for my number one job as a mother! Though I’m lucky to have family close by and a terrific babysitter right next door, I now know exactly where to go if I find myself in need of a quality care provider.
Do you have any questions for me or the Mom Force about how we review profiles on Care.com? Post a comment and let us know your thoughts!
