After school care in your area?

I was just wondering what sort of after school care programs are available in your area for middle school kids. Here, there seems to be this assumption that kids in 6th grade or older can let themselves in and just stay at home alone until the parents return from work, so there isn't a lot of support for structured care programs. There are also a lot of SAHPs as well, so maybe this is part of the reason there isn't enough demand for after school care to warrant having a program.
Do you think middle school kids need after school programs to fill in the gap until their parents get home from work?
