The Center for Community Action (CCA) is pleased to partner with the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) and to offer services as the Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) Region 6.

Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRCs) provide a single point-of-contact for families, early learning service providers, and communities by providing information and access to services that support high-quality child care and early learning programs.

The ELRCs have consolidated the work of Child Care Works (CCW) program and Keystone STARS to create an enhanced resource and referral system for communities seeking early learning services and supports.

The CCW subsidized child care program supports families in finding early care and education programs and paying for child care. The Keystone STARS program supports early care and education providers in their continuous quality improvement efforts.

Center for Community Action is the lead agency for all counties in ELRC 6 with a partnership with the South Central Community Action Partnership for subsidized child care in Franklin County. ELRC Region 6
