Resource and Referral

Resource and Referral (R&R) agencies, funded by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), Child Care and Development Division (CCDD), are located in every county in the state. The R&Rs help families find child-care that best meets their needs, recruit and train child care providers, and collect data from parents and child care providers.
