  • I think that you can go through social services and they will see if you qualify for it and set you up with some licenced chidcare facilities.

  • You have to qualify for it. Every state offers day-care assistance and YOU pick the daycare center. You have to be a low-income family, though. All you have to do is go to the department of human resources (or whatever they call it in your area) and apply for it.

  • YWCA works great but it isn't government funded daycare via YWCA and not all areas have a local YWCA/YMCA....they take the proceeds from membership fees and charitable donations, NOT the government.

  • IF YOU RECEIVE FOOD STAMPS OR MEDICAL THROUGH THE STATE DUE TO BEING LOW-INCOME YOU GO THROUGH THE SAME DEPARTMENT CHILDCARE AS YOU DO THOSE BENEFITS. CONTACT THE LOCAL DSHS OFFICE. OR TRY TO CONTACK THE WIC OFFICE IN YOUR AREA OR YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT. THEY DONT OFFER BUT THEY HAVE THE IMFORMATION AS TO WHO TO CANTACT IN YOUR AREA AND CAN GET YOU THE NUMBER AND LOCATION. I HOPE THIS HELPS.
