Welcome to Early Head Start - a free, year-round program for eligible children and their families. Operating hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm; transportation is not provided. Because EHS only serves children up to 36 months (3 years) and has an active waitlist, we are unable to guarantee placement for children older than 30 months (2.5 years). To be found eligible, children must meet at least one of the following criteria: 1. The child is a Foster Child (including Relative placement, custody, or adoption). 2. The child is homeless or experiencing verifiable housing insecurity. 3. The child is in a family that receives TANF, SNAP, or SSI. 4. The child is in a family with income at or below the poverty level for their household size. BEFORE YOU BEGIN: If you previously applied for Early Head Start for any child, you will be unable to complete this process without assistance. Please email EHS for support: ehsinfo@humankind.org
