Early Head Start (EHS) is a federally funded community-based program for low-income families with infants and toddlers and pregnant women. Its mission is simple: to promote healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women, enhance the development of very young children, and promote healthy family functioning. EHS evolved out of Head Start's long history of providing services to infants and toddlers through Parent Child Centers, Comprehensive Child Development Centers (CCDPs) and Migrant Head Start programs.
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.

How to Apply
All families wishing to enroll in Early Head Start must be income eligible by meeting the requirements of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, must live within the zip codes that we service: 77009, 77093, 77022 or PISD School Boundaries and have up to date immunizations, well child exams and dental exams for the children applying. We also reserve 10% of our enrollment for children with special needs and assist in providing or securing the proper resources to aid in the development and education of these children and their families.
