Details
Early Head Start is the newest part of the ACHR Child Development Program. The services for pregnant women, infants and toddlers are based at Darden and Edelman Centers. ACHR's EHS program began in 1998 with a unique combination of center based and home based models. The center based model, which serves children in a multi-age grouping with one teacher and four children, is available to mothers who are working or in school. The home based model is available to mothers who are at home with their children or who have alternate care arrangements for their babies and toddlers. In addition to visiting participants in their homes, Home Visitors work with pregnant teens and new teen mothers at six high schools in Lee and Russell Counties.

Who is Eligible?

Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.

Families are encouraged to apply.
