The mission of Early Head Start [EHS] is to promote healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women, enhance the development of very young children, and promote healthy family functioning. EHS was created by the U.S. Congress in the reauthorization of the Head Start Act in 1994. Since its inception, it has grown to a nationwide effort of 664 community-based programs serving 55,000 children.
