You Can Make Ends Meet With The Help Of Single Parent Child Care Assistance Programs


The key center point to raising and caring for your family as a single parent is to hold a steady job that will pay the bills and supply the means to purchase food, pay for housing, and so on. Many single mothers and fathers find that the biggest stumbling block to this is finding reliable and affordable child care. The cost of child care greatly increases the amount of money you need from your paycheck each week to meet your financial obligations. This is why there are organizations, private and public, that provide single parent child care assistance; they level the playing ground for single income households.

Single Parent Child Care Assistance

Government funded services are often meted out at the state level. For example, the Illinois Action for Children works with license daycare facilities all over the state. If a facility chooses to work with this organization, they must meet safety and service standards, laid out by the IAC. In return, they receive subsidies in exchange for taking children of low income families at a discounted rate, sometimes for free. You can learn more about the program at actforchildren.org.

The Choctaw Nation Child Care Assistance Program helps Choctaw families dealing with divorce, death, unemployment, under employment, and teenage pregnancy. Eligible families can receive financial assistance for child care until their children reach the age of 13, giving them the opportunity to secure gainful employment or attend school without the added burden of paying for child care. They offer preschool services to the young children and help older kids get to and from school each day. You can learn more at cncca.org.
