| Home > About Us

Child Action, Inc. is a private, nonprofit corporation created in 1976 to provide for the education and social welfare of children and families by organizing, sponsoring and administering services to children. We seek to augment and enhance the delivery of services for children rather than duplicate existing resources.

Child Action, Inc. is primarily funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division, to provide subsidies and child care and development services to low income families. Child Action, Inc. adheres to all California Department of Education regulations governing child development programs, and operates in accordance with all State of California laws governing non-profit agencies.

Our major goal is to promote the healthy growth and development of children and families living in Sacramento County. The services we provide include child care resource and referral, child care subsidies, recruitment and training of child care professionals, and parent education and support.

We believe that parents are best able to choose the child care that meets their particular family situation. It is our goal to provide parents with information on a broad range of child care services, as well as ways to assess these services.

We can provide information about child care and child development services as it is available, but we do not make recommendations. The choice of care remains with the parent. We are not responsible for arrangements between parents and providers.

Child Action, Inc. operates on a non-discriminatory basis, giving equal access to services without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, marital status, sexual preference, gender identity, veteran's status or any other bias prohibited by law.
