YOUR OWN UNITED RESOURCES, INC.
Early Head Start Expansion
Grant to serve an additional
24 participants in Hamilton, Webster and Wright Counties in Iowa with a comprehensive
home-based Early Head Start program. Participants receive a weekly 1 and 1/2 hour home visit with agency staff. It is our goal that participating pregnant women
will receive the support and services they need to have healthy pregnancies and that the infants and toddlers being served will be healthy and ready to learn and will develop skills that will help them grow and succeed in their current environments, in school and in life. Mothers and fathers will learn more about child development and their roles as nurturers and teachers of their children. We hope to be able to support families to be able to move toward self-sufficiency.
