Starting July 1, 2017, families who are experiencing homelessness can access child care subsidies through the Working Connections Child Care (WCCC) program. DEL has a contract with Child Care Aware of Washington (CCA of WA) to provide additional help for families to apply for WCCC. Families can call the CCA of WA Family Line toll free at 1-800-446-1114 and select an option in the phone tree that will transfer them to the homeless call center experts.
Families can also contact the Department of Social and Health Services directly to apply for WCCC. They can apply by calling at 1-877-501-2233 or on line at: https: https://www.washingtonconnection.org/home/home.go
