When I was a young child, I spent most of my time at
my babysitter's house. When my parents found Joyce,
shortly after my brother was born, they found more than
just a woman who ran a day care facility out of her home.
Joyce cared for around six or seven children at a time but
also belonged to a circle of other babysitters in her neigh-
borhood. This network provided an opportunity for large
scale play dates as well as resources for emergency child
care coverage. After I was old enough for school, I would

sharing that good news, the Commission also thought that
other minority bar associations might benefit from learning
how CABA built its pro bono program and reached a stage
where it could hire full-time staff counsel with an eye
toward emulating that success.
