EICAP Head Start understands that every family, regardless of their level of income, education, or self-sufficiency, requires support to deal with the profound challenges posed by today’s society.
Seeking and using support are critical family strengths, not deficits in family function. Our staff is dedicated to nurturing the “WHOLE” family. Advocates work to strengthen families by providing individualized home visits. Through these visits advocates and families build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect. Advocates empower families to work through crisis situations and provide resources and referrals as needed. They work in partnership to support the child’s classroom experience and make every effort to bring learning into the home. Families will have the opportunity to participate in goal setting, parent meeting activities and trainings which help increase their adult education and skill building knowledge.
