Finding the Funds: A Parent's Guide to Child Care Dollars [and] Human Service Professional's Handbook for Child Care Dollars.
Delaware Valley Child Care Council, Philadelphia, PA.
These two booklets, one for parents and the other for human service professionals, were designed by the Delaware Valley Child Care Council to provide information about local day care services to low and moderate income families, families with income at or below the poverty level, and families who either receive or have received public assistance within the past year. The parent booklet provides the addresses and telephone numbers of area county assistance offices, local management agencies, and Head Start programs, as well as the maximum income levels for assistance under these programs. The human service professional's booklet includes similar information, but is more specific in discussing how parents can qualify for these child care assistance programs. It also outlines specific steps that can be taken to help parents find funding, and provides examples of applicable child care benefits and guidelines on helping parents select a good early childhood program.
