Early Head Start serves infants, toddlers, pregnant women and their families. Programs enhance children's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development; assist pregnant women to access comprehensive care; support parents as their child’s first teacher; and support families moving toward self-sufficiency.
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.

How to Apply
Enrollment for income eligible families occurs throughout the year with center based and home based program options.
