Homeless Child Care Program


Is your family experiencing homelessness?

Families who are experiencing homelessness can access child care subsidies through the Working Connections Child Care (WCCC) program.  To obtain assistance in applying for the WCCC program, Child Care Aware of Washington (CCA of WA) is the go-to resource for families. Call 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 or visit their website.

Families can also contact the Department of Social and Health Services directly to apply for WCCC at 1-877-501-2233.
