Neighborhood House Association (NHA) Head Start programs promote the school readiness of infants, toddlers, and preschool-aged children from families with low income.
Services are provided in a variety of settings including centers, family childcare, and children's own home. They are available at no or low cost to children ages birth to 5, and prenatally, for families with low income. Families and children experiencing homelessness, and children in the foster care system are also eligible.
Additionally, Head Start services are available to children with disabilities and other special needs. We also engage parents or other key family members in positive relationships, with a focus on family well-being. Parents participate in leadership roles, including having a say in program operations.
