Brightpoint Expands to Six New Counties with Child Care Assistance

Brightpoint (formerly Community Action of Northeast Indiana or CANI) is excited to announce the expansion of our Child Care Assistance program into six new counties. Effective Monday, September 28, 2015, Brightpoint will be the new intake agency for the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) in St. Joseph, LaPorte, Marshall, Fulton, Pulaski and Starke counties.

Brightpoint has been the intake agent for the Child Care Development Fund in Northeast Indiana for 25 years. “We look forward to assisting more parents who are working or getting an education by helping them with child care expenses as we expand into this region,” says Lesa Cassel, Brightpoint Family Support Services Manager. “We are working hard to make this a seamless transition for those already receiving assistance in these counties.”

Questions regarding the transition can be directed to the Family Support Department at Brightpoint by calling 1-800-589-3506 and following the prompts for child care. Effective September 28, the main office for this region will be located at 919 E. Jefferson in South Bend. An additional office for this region is located in Michigan City.
