YMCA provides no-cost daycare to essential workers
Friday, April 10, 2020
Child care providers play a central role in battling COVID-19, as many government-designated essential workers, including medical professionals, need them.
Palestine’s YMCA, and the Texas Workforce Commission’s Child Care Services are working to provide daycare services to all essential workers – whether or not they can afford them.
CCS, which provides needy families with financial assistance for child care, eased its restrictions this week, qualifying more families than ever. It will pay for all child care costs for essential workers in April – and possibly beyond.
