>Starting this month, Center for Human Services will be partnering with Children’s Home Society to serve families through Early Head Start. A new grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to Children’s Home Society is making it possible for 50 families living in North King County to access Early Head Start.

20 families will participate in a center-based program and 30 families will receive weekly home visits from Children’s Home Society and attend Play and Learn groups at our Shoreline and Northshore Family Centers. To learn more, please see the full press release from Children’s Home Society.

To be eligible for Early Head Start families must be living with a low income and have children ages birth – 2. Families with children ages birth-2 who are already receiving assistance from Washington State such as foster care, basic food or WIC are automatically eligible. If you know a family who would be interested in enrolling in this program, please contact Velia Lara at the Shoreline Family Support Center.
