Based on the information you provide about your job, employer, number of children, and financial need, OCFS may be able to help you find the child program you need. It may be a challenge to find child care due to COVID-19 related program closures, however the staff at OCFS are trying their best to support families to find the high quality child care that they need.

Please see below for a letter dated March 16 to families whose children receive services through A Child’s Place at Unity House.
Dear A Child’s Place Families:
In light of the current Coronavirus Pandemic, A Child’s Place at Unity House has made the decision to temporarily suspend all programs effective today at 5:30. This includes Early Intervention, Special Education center based and outreach programming, UPK and child care.
We understand that this is a hardship for many of our families and this decision has not been made lightly. The health and safety of our children, families and staff is always at the forefront of what we do. For families needing assistance with food, school districts are providing meals for students under the age of 18. Please check your local school district for information. You can also contact Unity House at 518-274-2607 for additional assistance.
We will look for ongoing guidance and direction from local school districts and other agencies which provide oversight to our program regarding when services and programs will resume. Please visit our website at: achildsplace.unityhouseny.org for further updates.
