Head Start & Early Head Start


What is Head Start & Early Head Start?

ABC Head Start and Early Head Start (HS & EHS) is a federally-funded program in Monroe County that provides educational and developmental services to over 1,000 children and pregnant women. We also provide 175 children with services through a partnership with Volunteers of America and Ibero American Action League.

In the United States, every year over a million children are served by Head Start programs in every state and territory. Today, ABC provides one of the highest performing programs in the country by actively ensuring all children, regardless of family income, have a quality preschool education; as well as assisting parents in providing a home-life that nurtures their child’s full development.
