COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM INC OF WESTERN INDIANA
This award provides for ARRA Early Head Start Expansion funded to serve 20 children. The Early Head Start program provides family-centered services for low-income families with very young children (pre-birth to 3) to promote the healthy development of the children and families. Our program options include home based services and center-based child care services appropriate for the needs of our population. Center-based care is reserved for families whose parents are working or in school full-time. The program expects to see greater competencies in staff from enhanced staff development opportunities, greater gains from the children due to the higher level of staff knowledge, and increased parent education opportunities. Additionally, our expansion allows us to become more visible and have a greater impact within our communities.
