Capital Area Early Head Start Family Day

 
Capital Area Head Start gives children a head start in life, empowers parents and strengthens families. CAHS began providing Head Start services to children and families in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry Counties in 1988, when Keystone Children & Family Services received a grant for the program. In 2001, Early Head Start services was added to serve pregnant women and children from birth to three.

CAHS has received a state grant to operate Pre-K Counts programming for three- and four-year-olds in the city of Harrisburg. To ensure that CAHS is there for children when they need it most, they reach out to other vulnerable populations within our communities, and have a unique program for children of families experiencing homelessness. Head Start's warm, nurturing environment serves as a source of stability in the lives of young children who may be frequently uprooted during the school year. CAHS also provides support services for children whose parents are incarcerated.

Harrisburg River Rescue is proud to support their cause by participating in the Family Day event.
