Providing Lucas County Families the Support They Need

Our staff provides Lucas County children comprehensive educational for children ages birth through five. Our programs are designed to increase school readiness for children and provide families opportunities to help children reach full potential. Children are provided with education, nutrition, medical, mental health, and dental services.  

Our team provides coordinated care to families of children with chronic health conditions or who have special needs. They work together with families to stabilize children’s health as well as align home and school support for children with Individual Education Plans (IEP’s) or challenging behaviors. More intensive support is provided to families facing significant challenges, such as domestic violence, depression, or substance abuse. This helps to reduce the potential negative consequences that these circumstances can have on children’s healthy development and school success. 

Advocates build social capital among our program’s families. This creates opportunities for shared family life practice and self-sufficiency goal achievement, leadership, and advocacy.  

Each family receives at least two home visits and two parent-teacher conferences. 

Eligibility is based on income guidelines; however, we encourage all families to apply to our program.  As an Early Head Start and Head Start program, we will consider each family’s unique circumstances.  Our dedicated team will work to support families with finding the highest quality educational opportunities for their children.  

Head Start has a life-changing impact on families and the community. We are excited to make a difference for the children and families served by the Head Start program in Lucas County. Together, we can make amazing things happen for each child we serve.
