Family and Community Engagement

Family Engagement

Family Partnership Agreement

Once your child is enrolled in Head Start, families and staff become partners in supporting the child’s development – and that includes building stronger families. Parents receive support from staff in meeting their own goals, such as obtaining a GED, attending college, improving housing, managing family finances, and sustaining healthy relationships.

Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is an important key to being able to meet your needs and lead a more secure life. People who learn to successfully budget and build assets are more financially stable and are in a better position to support their families. The YWCA  is committed to helping you learn the financial skills to better support your family and protect your future. Ask a Family Advocate for available opportunities.
