Mission Statement

  • To build strong families through the cooperative efforts of state and local agencies meeting the needs of families within the community.  We are committed to enhancing the overall intellectual, emotional, and physical development of each child and family in our community.
     

Goals

    • To encourage social support linkages and communication networks among families to reduce isolation and to promote family involvement within the school and community
    • Ensure that families have access to appropriate services and receive the assistance as needed
    • Ensure a successful foundation in the academic community of the critically important first few years which will secure later intellectual achievement, physical growth, and social development
    • Foster the relationship between parent and child with care and professional training
    • Promote the healthy growth and development of children, by assisting families to identify and to work toward solving home-based and community-based problems that pose a barrier to a child's educational success
