Through our work with families we identified the need for an additional, less restricted child care scholarship fund. Sometimes families experience unforeseen obstacles, even when they’re doing all they can to maintain self-sufficiency. To respond to this unmet need, Child Care Resources created the Hand Up Scholarship Fund. To raise the funds for this scholarship program we hold an annual event.
The Hand Up fund provides short-term, temporary child care assistance. Qualifying circumstances:
- Parents need child care while seeking employment.
- Parents are undergoing a medical emergency or medical respite, including chemical dependency treatment.
- Parents have a sick child who cannot attend child care, but the parent cannot miss work.
- Summer camp tuition assistance for school-age children.
To qualify for the Hand Up scholarship, the parent must reside in Missoula, Mineral or Ravalli counties.
If you know someone who may qualify for this type of short-term assistance, please have them contact us.
