Mission Statement

We hold ourselves accountable to work in collaboration with our families and communities to provide a quality program, committed to the wellness of the entire family.


See a child as they are meant to be.

The services provided by this program are very comprehensive. Five major component areas serve the needs of the children enrolled and their families: Education/Literacy, Health, Parent Involvement, Family Services and Nutrition.
