The purpose of the YWCA Early Head Start program is to enhance the educational status and economic outcomes of primarily adolescent parents and their children. This purpose is accomplished by providing early, continuous, and comprehensive child development services, parenting training, family support and assistance, and health services to effect positive long-term outcomes for children and families. The program is a generational approach starting with adolescent parent families as a beginning point to systematically address the realities of children and families living in poverty. In addition to children of adolescent parents the program also serves pregnant adolescents, children with disabilities and children in poverty (ages birth - 3 years.)
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.
