Head Start is a Federal program serving economically disadvantaged Birth through five-year-old children and families. It is a comprehensive child development program designed to enhance children's educational experiences, social-emotional development, physical development, language and communication abilities, and overall successful life experiences.
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.
