This report analyzed demographic and labor market information, as well as focus groups and a service provider survey in an effort 1) to identify structural barriers that prevent Chinese parents from working in growing industries which provide self-sufficiency wages and career mobility and 2) to identify existing gaps in family support and employment-related services needed to overcome those barriers. Ultimately, this report is intended to serve as a program planning and design tool to improve family support and employment related services for Chinese families in growing sectors of the local economy.
