Parent/Child Incorporated (PCI) is a private, non-profit single purpose human services agency devoted to providing high quality comprehensive services to children and families. PCI’s mission is to provide quality early childhood developmental services and education as we empower our children and families to become caring, competent, responsible citizens who value education and community as we grow San Antonio and surrounding area’s future.

Parent/Child Incorporated (PCI) has been a proud sponsoring organization with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) for over thirty years in Atascosa, Bexar, Frio, Comal, Guadalupe, Kerr, Medina and Wilson Counties within the State of Texas.

Through its CACFP, PCI provides reimbursement for meals and snacks served to small groups of children receiving nonresidential day care in private homes that are licensed, registered, or approved to provide family child care. PCI’s licensed or registered day care homes utilize the CACFP meal patterns to guide the preparation of well-balanced and nutritious meals that promote the child’s overall health and well-being. A family or group day care home may sign an agreement with PCI to participate in CACFP. Through participation in this program, licensed or registered day care home providers receive services in Health and safety standards, training, and monitoring to make CACFP an important component of their quality child care.

Target Populations: Infants, toddlers and families who live in high risk, urban and rural areas in Bexar County and eight surrounding counties
