We’re Seeking Licensed Day Care Providers!



Family Support Services (formerly known as Family Support Services of the Bay Area) recently extended a program to provide free respite/child care services to East Bay Foster Parents and Relative Caregivers on evenings, weekends, and overnights. 

We are seeking to contract with a number of licensed family day care homes, day care providers, and foster homes, particularly in the Antioch, Hayward, and Oakland areas that are interested in providing intermittent respite to foster families and relative caregivers. These services will be provided at the provider’s licensed day care home or certified foster home.

We need providers for days, evening, weekends, or overnights. Some requests will be scheduled, but we also receive emergency requests. Hours are flexible. We will contact you if we have a request – you let us know if you are available to fill it.

Providers will be compensated for the provision of their services.

Interested parties please contact:

N. Bruce Williams - Respite/Child Care Program Director (415) 861-4060 ext. 3011
