California Alternative Payment (AP) Programs are community-based organizations that believe in creating opportunities for every family to succeed. We help families to stay on their feet by providing financial assistance for child care that enables parents to get a job, keep a job, or attend school.
Child care resource and referral agencies are state-funded, community-based programs that exist in every county in California. We provide child care referrals and parenting resources to anyone in our community regardless of income. We also offer support to child care providers in our community.
