Promotion of Self Sufficiency through Partnership Agreements
Assistance with Accessing Community Resources and Services
Opportunities for Parent Engagement Activities
The goal of the Family Advocacy Content Area is to partner with families and the community to help strengthen Head Start families. Family partnership agreements record family strengths, needs, establish objectives and measure progress toward meeting the objectives. Parents are given access to community resources in areas such as emergency assistance, educational opportunities, parenting classes, employment training and counseling.
All members of a household, or any member considered to be an integral part of the family’s development, are included. The Head Start Childplus System tracks family referrals and services received.
Head Start recognizes that parents are the first educators of their children. Fathers and other men in the child’s life are encouraged to become involved and to embrace education for the whole family.
