Early Head Start

Support for expectant families and children is here

SAL Family & Community Service’s new Early Head Start Child Care Partnership (EHS CCP) provides comprehensive, individualized services to low-income infants and toddlers up to age 4, as well as pregnant mothers and their families living in Henry, Mercer, and Rock Island Counties, Illinois.

Eligible families may choose from a variety of program options:

  • Low-income families who are also eligible for child care subsidies with children up to age 3 may receive services in one of our Skip-A-Long Child Development Centers (SKIP), or our contracted partner center.
  • Low-income families who are also eligible for child care subsidies with children up to age 4, who prefer an intimate home-like setting, may elect to receive quality, early childhood services through our contracted Home Child Care Network (HCCN) providers.
  • Pregnant mothers and families with children under 3 years of age also have the option to enroll in our home-based program and receive services through weekly home visits and bi-monthly socializations

 

We're here to walk you through the eligibility requirements

We are currently welcoming applications for new families and children, in addition to those already enrolled at SKIP. If you have any questions about eligibility requirements or how to apply, please contact Angela Casteel, eligibility director, at (309) 764-8110 (option 3).
