Some of these services include a year-round, full-day educational program for children- two, three, and four-years old; on-site preventive services for children with special learning needs; continuing support for children after they transition into elementary school and parent programs fostering advocacy, self-development, and community involvement.

- The CCS grant will be used for their Preventative Services for At- Risk Preschool Children, which will serve young children in the Head Start and Child Care programs each year. The grant provides a week’s salary for one of their play therapists. This person can work with approximately 10 children on an individual 1-1 basis weekly and provide support to the families as well.
