Head Start is a comprehensive child and family development program that promotes school readiness in low-income preschool children. Services include education, health, nutrition, social services, and other child and family supports. Parents are involved in their children’s learning, and the program helps families in meeting their educational, literacy, and employment goals.
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.
