Family Connections strives to
- Increase the availability and accessibility of child care programs,
- Promote recognition of child care issues, and
- Encourage the development of quality child care services
Family Connections, Inc., a Child Care Resource & Referral Agency, developed the Connections program in 1998 to help support the financial needs of low-income, qualifying families in paying for their child care costs.
With over 70% of children in care outside their homes, many of these children are enrolled in family or group center child care programs while their parents or caregivers are at work. Covering the cost of quality child care can be very challenging on a family’s budget.
Connections offers qualifying parents and caregivers:
Weekly Child Care Fees
Through both direct financial assistance paid to the regulated child care programs and care management components for the adult parent(s)/caregiver(s), families are supported in their pursuit towards self-sufficiency.
Children of the participants receive quality care from regulated providers who offer consistency to children, in a safe and healthy environment that stimulates early learning.
