Many recent studies in the field of child development prove that the period from birth to age three is a critical time in a child’s development. In response to this fact, Early Head Start was established by Congress with the reauthorization of the Head Start Act in1994 to help ensure that all infants and toddlers get a good and healthy start in life. Hoosier Uplands began providing Early Head Start services in December 1999.We are proud to offer the Early Head Start program to qualifying families in Lawrence, Orange, Martin, and Washington counties. Currently we serve 76 pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and their families on a year-round basis.
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.
