Patch is Hawaii’s Statewide Child Care Resource and Referral Agency.
Child care resource and referral (CCR&R) agencies, like PATCH are located throughout the country. CCR&R services have evolved from grassroot efforts to help parents find child care, to well-developed systems that support parents, providers, and local communities in finding, planning for, and providing quality child care.
PATCH is the only Hawaii member of the Child Care Aware National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (NACCRA)
