Give Parents a Break
Give Parents a Break is a community grant program offered to families by the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS).
"The AFAS recognizes that Air Force families are subject to unique stresses due to the nature of military life - deployments, remote tours of duty, extended working hours, etc. Families are often separated from spouses as well as from extended family members who might otherwise offer support. In an effort to help these families, the AFAS, in cooperation with the Air Force child care community, has agreed to provide funding for child care for active duty Air Force families under a program called "Give Parents a Break".

To enroll in this program, a certificate of eligibility needs to be collected from the Ellsworth AFB Airman and Family Readiness Center, as well as a completed copy of the AF 1181, Immunization Record.  If your child is of school age (5 - 13) bring all the documentation to the Youth Center to sign up. If your child is younger than 5 please check with the Child Development Center (CDC).
