YWCA of Genesee County offers licensed before and after school childcare and a Summer Adventure program; the Child and Adult Care Food Program and free daycare to families in court at our Children’s Center in the Courts at the Genesee County Courthouse Facility.

Child and Adult Care Food Program

The Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program to help providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings. YWCA is a sponsor of CACFP. We are the liaison between the program and providers. Our 26 providers are located throughout Genesee and surrounding counties and are located in their own homes. We help providers to follow rules and regulations and to complete paperwork efficiently and on time. We also offer yearly trainings. Providers must complete necessary registration forms in order to participate in the program. We conduct home visits at least three times per year to ensure that the program is being followed in all areas. We are always looking for new providers that we can serve. If you or someone you know is interested, please call (585) 343-5808.
