Program Overview

Launched by The Family & Workplace Connection (now part of Children & Families First) on January 1, 1995, Just in Time Care is a comprehensive, national backup dependent care program that links individuals with backup care options that best meet their needs, no matter where they live. Options can include child care centers, family child care homes, school-age programs, centers for mildly ill children, adult day care centers, and child and adult in-home care. Individuals can also choose their own backup care providers, including friends and family members. An employer subsidy, managed by Just in Time Care, helps offset the backup care costs.
