Families in Crisis and Transition
Children’s Council provides child care payment assistance and intensive supports for families living in homeless or domestic violence shelters, as well as families who have an open Child Protective Services case. Access to stable child care arrangements creates stability for these families, and helps them move towards long-term self-sufficiency.
Assistance for Families in Homeless or Domestic Violence Shelters
The ACCESS program helps families living in homeless or domestic violence shelters obtain child care. Having access to child care allows parents in the shelter system to secure housing, job training, employment, health services, and other resources needed for a stable life. For more information on the ACCESS program, contact Maria Wallace, Family Services Manager, at 415.276.2900.
Assistance for Families Involved with Child Protective Services
The Family and Children’s Services program helps families whose children have been placed in the care of a guardian or foster parent, or whose children are at risk for such a placement. Clients in this program receive assistance with child care, helping them to gain stability in their current or new families. For more information on the Family and Children’s Services program, contact Mabel Lee, Family Services Manager, at 415.276.2900.
