Some of our program options also include child care services at our contracted facilities. Services available vary depending on location.

Program service options are:
  1. Home-based program option – Families with children under the age of three receive weekly home visits by trained Early Head Start staff and join group socials twice a month.
  2. Pregnant Women program option - Pregnant women and their families receive 2 home visits a month during their pregnancy.  Once their baby is born, the child moves into the home-based program.
