The Early Head Start Partnership Program is a collaboration of Columbus’ leading community agencies focused on the education and welfare of children and their families. Our goal is to ensure that children from infancy to age four, receive a healthy and enriching start in life. Early Head Start provides high-quality early education, along with comprehensive child development, health, nutrition, social and other services to families who qualify. We work with families, partners and providers in a comprehensive approach to meet the needs of the whole child and whole family. This generational approach supports stability and long-term success for families who are at most risk. In 2015, the partnership received $18 million in federal and non-federal funding for a five year period. In 2019, a new grant was awarded to continue our efforts through 2024. The goal? To expand access to high quality services for 160 infants and toddlers from low-income families; nearly 80% earning less than $800 per month.
