Healthcare Workers in St. Louis

Note: We have been overwhelmed by the response from providers in St. Louis, and we currently have more healthcare workers than students signed up. We want to emphasize that this is a grassroots effort by medical and other graduate students who have other obligations, changing availability, and cannot provide permanent, full-time childcare, so we encourage everyone to continue actively pursuing other options for childcare even if we are able to match you with a student for temporary assistance during the COVID emergency. We are leaving the form open for submissions, but our responses may be delayed as we work to scale our database of volunteers.

We have a number of medical, health sciences, and college students signed up to provide childcare in St. Louis, and we are actively working on adding new students every day. If you are a healthcare worker and have a need for childcare, fill out the form below and we will get to work trying to match you with someone who can help. In the meantime, share the student signup page locally.

This project is still getting off the ground, so we cannot guarantee that we will be able to match you with anyone, but we will be in contact within 72 hours to give you information on whether or not we can help. If you have any urgent questions, send an email to
