Head Start specializes in comprehensive health, educational, nutritional, social and other services for eligible low income families with children ages 3 to 5. The program maximizes the strengths and unique experiences of each child. The family, which is the principal influence on the child's development, directly participates in the program. Children with disabilities participate with all children in program activities and receive special services as required.
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.
