Wiggle Room innovates tools for a durable and dynamic early care system, centering communities of color. In 2020, Jaime-Jin stood up #WorkersNeedChildcare, NYC’s only childcare hotline for essential workers, as well as #CareTogetherNYC, a mutual aid project entirely dedicated to helping essential workers pay for urgent childcare needs that moved over $153K in four months. Jaime-Jin is a #Care100 Most Influential Person in Care of 2020, a 2021 David Prize finalist, and an alumna of the Blue Ridge Labs, Catalyst Incubator, Camelback Ventures, Roddenberry, and The City Fellowship at Company Ventures.
