Updated September 23, 2018 11:18:00Child care providers have long faced an uphill battle to provide high-quality child care services.
A lot of people are going to be very disappointed to learn that many children in some communities are not being adequately supported in their care.
While there are many reasons why parents can’t afford child care, there are also many parents who are concerned about their child’s future.
In many states, there is a shortage of child care workers, and many providers are struggling to find qualified and caring staff to meet their needs.
When a child is in need of child support, the state of Tennessee offers some special services for those who can’t find a child care provider.
For example, those with low incomes can receive a cash assistance check from the state to pay for child care costs.
If a parent or grandparent is in an emergency situation, they can receive assistance to pay the cost of childcare.
If you or someone you know needs child care assistance, call the Tennessee Child Support Hotline at 1-800-252-2342.
