Head Start Connects: Individualizing and Connecting Families to Comprehensive Family Support Services

Share
Description:
Since its origins, Head Start has emphasized delivering comprehensive services that align with children and families' diverse strengths and needs. A strength of Head Start's approach has been its dual focus on offering comprehensive services that support both children and their families to improve child development in the long-term: coupling early care and education, nutrition, health, and social supports for children with parenting, self-sufficiency, health/mental health, and leadership services for parents. However, despite significant knowledge of which services Head Start programs offer to families, little is known about how programs coordinate the provision of these services. The Head Start Connects project aims to generate knowledge about the processes through which Head Start programs coordinate the provision of family support services that are responsive to families' specific needs.
