Child Care Resource and Referral agencies provide a diverse array of parent services in every state. Parent Services Spearheaded by Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies details how agency staff help parents take the guesswork out of choosing child care- giving them referrals to local providers, information on state licensing requirements, the availability of child care subsidies and information about child development, health care, and nutrition programs, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and a wide array of parenting resources. Given today’s economy, parents need all the help they can get to find affordable, quality child care in their community.
