Early Head Start is a free family visiting program for qualifying families. "Parent Partners" make weekly home visits to pregnant mothers, and children age 0-3 and their families. The primary purpose is to build a healthy parent-child relationship. Components of the program include education and child development opportunities, social services referrals, and guidance and referrals for health, mental health, and nutrition concerns. The program also offers group gatherings twice a month where you can meet other parents of young children.

Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services.
