HEAD START
Children ages three to  ve are better prepared to enter kindergarten through the provision
of early childhood education, developmental screenings, health, nutrition, and human services. Their parents learn to support their family’s development while reaching their own personal goals such as a GED or higher education.
EARLY HEAD START
Early Head Start provides center- and home- based education, health, and human services to pregnant women and families with children up to age three. Prenatal care and birth outcomes of pregnant women are improved and parents are more emotionally supportive of their children. Developmental and behavioral issues are identi ed early so that parents can understand how to address them and care for their children appropriately.

FAMILY ENGAGEMENT
The Child and Family Development program establishes goal- oriented relationships with families that focus on shared goals for children’s learning and development and overall family well-being. Families are encouraged to engage in their child’s education and are provided with opportunities to gain parenting skills through
a research-based curriculum. Families volunteer in classrooms and through parent committee activities. Through work in this and other committees and the program policy council, family members gain leadership and advocacy skills. Staff utilize a strengths-based approach in their work with families to identify needs, to obtain resources, and for families to reach their goals.
