Free Child Care Comes to Long Beach

Release Date: 2020-10-28

The COVID-19 crisis is hitting working families hard. That’s why today Long Beach is launching a new program to provide free, in-home childcare services to residents impacted by the pandemic.

Working families need help and cities across our country need to provide as create programs to assist parents and guardians.

Our Childcare Program will provide working parents up to 40 hours of free childcare services seven days a week, 24 hours a day, based on a family’s care needs, including support for children with disabilities and special needs. The program will enable Long Beach parents to work daytime, evenings or weekends while ensuring that their children are being cared for from the safety and comfort of their home.

The City will now accept applications for the program and you can inquire more here: pacific-gateway.org/WorkLBCARES.

This program would not be possible without the support of Governor Newsom and our state partners. In addition, a huge thanks to our entire city team for working so hard to get this program launched. 

Thank you,

Mayor Robert Garcia
