The entire range of Head Start services is responsive and appropriate to each child and family’s developmental, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage and experience.
In 2015 Catholic Charities added Early Head Start which is designed to nurture healthy attachments between parent and child (and child and caregiver).
