Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) Head Start programs serve families with poverty level incomes at five NAEYC*-accredited sites in some of Chicago’s most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods (Humboldt Park, North Austin, Rogers Park, Uptown and West Englewood). Head Start is a federally funded program. LSSI’s Head Start sites also receive additional funds from city and state sources.
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.
