Friends of Children and Families, Inc. (FOCAF) is always seeking eligible children and families to participate in
Head Start and Early Head Start.
Eligibility is Determined by:
Age of Child:
For Head Start your child must be 4 years of age by Sept. 1st;
For Early Head Start you must be pregnant or your child must be under the age of 3 years old;
Families must meet Federal poverty income guidelines.
We reserve 10% of enrollment opportunities for families with a child with a diagnosed disability that has an IEP or IFSP.
In addition, FOCAF uses a set of selection criteria to determine which families and children should be prioritized for services.
FOCAF does not select children and families on a “first-come first-serve” basis
If you are a parent seeking additional information or wanting to enroll a child in Head Start, or if you are interested in the Early Head Start program for expectant mothers and children ages 0-3, please call our enrollment center. 208-433-9078
