Got a call yesterday that now the subsidy through the Childcare Council has been cut,and that we won't be getting paid for June services.So now the parents are responsible for that and 2 weeks have already gone by... Also, our food program has been cut...although the Council said there is probably another agency going to take that over.
For me,that is going to be $900.00 less in my paycheck a month,but NO more paperwork..YAYYYY!

Child Care Council Closing Doors
Source: Finger Lakes News Radio


A local agency that promotes early learning for children is closing it's doors. The Child Care Council of the Finger Lakes- which serves both Cayuga and Seneca counties- will cease operations effective June 30th.

Board of Directors President Karen Stewart tells the Auburn Citizen that the council will cease operations "due to unfortunate circumstances", but she declined to specify what those circumstances were.

The Child Care Council employs 8 people. The New York State Office of Children and Family Services is working to continue to provide services now provided by the local council.

10-11 years ago when I was going to school I received subsidy for childcare. I remember it was through Workforce Developement formally JTPA. It's a shame to see these type of programs go as it certianly helped me tremendously! I only had to pay $30 a week out of my pocket for childcare and they picked up the rest.

I know a few young mothers that get this type of assistance right now too. I don't know how they will be able to afford childcare and work if this was the place that was helping them. They barely make just over minium wage and are almost welfare stricken as it is.

There are some parents still getting help from the County but there is a freeze on new applications and some parents have been cut as well from this one. Ontario County still has all there funding I believe. Most all of my parents are single Mom's who needed that extra help,they have all had the same job for 5 or more years.

More cutbacks when in this economic climate people need it the most.

It's a double edged sword. While people are mostly willing to help and are sympathetic to the need they don't want to pay higher taxes to fund it either.

And I agree about some of the waste but I do not agree with cutting the programs which help people who are working and trying to better themselves.

And I agree with your statement also 100%. Help those who are trying to help themselves. All social programs are meant to be "temporary assistance", yet as we all know this simply isn't the case.

You're in luck! It was incredibly difficult, but, with Festus' help, I finally learned to Google. It took him a month to teach me to type a search phrase, such as "state cost of living list" into the Google search box, but here's the resulting list:

It's cheaper, I'm sure, but would you really want to LIVE there? Seriously.

OH, c'mon; it's probably almost as good as any other 3rd world place!

Ontario county is alot harder on the moms on what they have to fill out ...I know a few single moms who were cut because the weren't actively seeking child support. They make sure you need it they don't just hand it to you they require 8 weeks of paystubs before they even approve you. Which I think is a good thing, however in some cases it's tough because you know they qualify, but rules are rules.

I have a Mom that lives in Ontario County and works in SF..she had NO problems with her subsidy at all, she was approved before she even had a pay stub..I had recieved my first check from Ontario for daycare before she had 8 stubs..that was not our problem..It's our food program and subsidy through United Way..which is no longer a problem as Ontario has taken over Seneca and Syracuse has taken over Cayuga.

Once a parent applies the County takes over looking for the child support from the absent parent.I doubt they were cut for that reason....If those Mom's did not turn in their pay stubs or re-cert when asked they were probably cut for that reason.
