Need Help Paying for Child Care?

The Federal Government, California and San Francisco fund a broad range of local child care programs. HSA administers vouchered, subsidized child care to eligible families served through CalWORKs, Family and Children's Services, homeless programs, and other subsidy programs for low-income families. Children's Council of San Francisco is contracted by HSA to administer its city and state funded child care subsidies. Additionally, they provide Resource and Referral helping parents find the appropriate child care that meets their needs.
