Do I qualify for funding?
To be eligible, students must be enrolled in credit bearing classes and meet a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. Individual award amounts will be based on the total number of applications received, financial need of applicants, and the amount of funds available. Please note that if awarded, funds will only be issued to pay licensed child care providers.

What is the Parent Resource Club?
The purpose of our club is to provide an avenue for student–parents to network, support each other, and share information and tips. Anyone can access the club Facebook page, where we post resources, list our events, and provide a quick and easy way for you to join our meetings.
On our Facebook page, we share current resources such as low cost salon services, family pizza coupons, and links to financial literacy workshops. Some of our own events include free mini–massage with a stress relief lecture and nutrition information session with food samples.
Parent Resource Fair
Several times a year, we organize a campus event to showcase our many partner community organizations who can provide help to parents. We include such organizations as HeadStart, Child Care Resources of King County, and Neighborhood House.
What general child care information is available?
We are available for drop–in consultation to answer your questions or concerns about alternative funding sources, low cost family activities, organizations providing clothing, holiday gift resources, etc.
