Child Care

Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend (WFSCB) receives funding from the Texas Workforce Commission to provide subsidized child care services for low-income families within its 11-County region (Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio counties). This funding makes it possible for parents to maintain jobs or attend school or participate in training activities which enable them to enhance their quality of life and the lives of their children.

This program provides support to families in our communities who are working towards improving their quality of life.  This program builds the workforce of the future by developing the skills of children ages
0 – 12, preventing circumstances leading to abuse, and promoting health and safety.

Looking For Child Care Financial Assistance?

Parents participating in the Child Care Services Program receive financial assistance to help pay for their children to attend a State licensed child care center, licensed child care home, or a listed relative child care provider. Child care services may be provided for children ranging in age from “0” to “12”.

Studies consistently show that children who receive quality care at an early age perform better overall. Moreover, parents who know their children are well-cared for are more focused and productive on the job.

To qualify, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Single-parent families must be working/training at least 25 hours per week
  • Two-parent families must be working/training at least 50 hours per week
