Financial Assistance

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) helps families who are working or in school pay for childcare through the Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) program. Child Care Centers must have at least a 1 Star Rating in order to accept PFCC payments. With our 1 Star Rating, we are able to accept PFCC payments, which may mean that your out of pocket costs could be reduced.  Families qualifying for PFCC may be required to pay for part of your child care in the form of a co-payment. The amount you pay is based on your gross income and family size.

You may apply at https://rom the Y Service or call Missy Davidson with Marion County JFS at 740-223-1921. If don’t qualify for PFCC, but meet our financial assistance requirements, then you can apply for our in-house financial assistance. The application process is simple and quick. You can download an application from the Y’s website at  or pick one up from the Y Service Center.
