Family Services

Head Start, Inc. has eight Family Advocates who provide families with referrals to community resources in areas such as emergency assistance, educational opportunities, parenting classes, employment training, and counseling.  Each Advocate is assigned to the families of children in several classrooms.  In our partnership with parents we use Family Partnership Agreements to identify and build upon family strengths and interests and to work toward family generated goals.  Family Advocates maintain regular contact with parents to provide on-going support as they assist families with achieving their goals, meeting with parents in the home, community, or at one of the Head Start sites.
