This week, a Santa Maria family got a boost from a local organization that raises money to help families pay for child care.
The Fund-A-Star Scholarship helps provide childcare for those who are not eligible for state funding or state subsidies.
Scholarship recipient Kristi La France says, "Without this, it would be difficult to get them (the children) to daycare and that would mean less job opportunity for my husband not being able to get to interviews, more sick leave for me."
The program offers four, $1,000 checks annually to local families.
People interested in the program have to submit an application to the Children's Resource & Referral program.
