Child Care Services Update

Update – May 21, 2021

Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend currently has funding available to support enrolling additional children into the direct care Child Care Services Program!

Parents participating in the Child Care Services (CCS) 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.


WFSCB enrolls children into the CCS Program from the waitlist. Please visit our website at and click on the Child Care tab to complete a waitlist application with your contact information so that you can be placed on our waitlist. A child care staff member will contact you to complete the eligibility process. If you have any questions, please call (361) 882-7491 ext. 426.
