Family Support

Head Start


Head Start promotes the school readiness, health, and development of young children from birth to age five from low-income families in centers, childcare partner locations, and in their own homes.

Salvation Army


The Salvation Army provides confidential emergency and transitional shelters where women and their children can stay, assistance with steps toward recovery and independent living, food pantries, meal programs, and other resources.

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)


The four purposes of TANF are to: provide assistance to needy families so that children can be cared for in their own homes, promote job preparation, work, and marriage, prevent and reduce out-of-wedlock pregnancies, and encourage the formation and maintenance of two parent families.
