General School Mission

In creating this program, Congress acted upon evidence from research and practice which illustrates that early intervention through high quality programs enhances childrenĆ¢??s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development; enables parents to be better caregivers and teachers to their children; and helps parents meet their own goals, including economic independence.

BRAD received funding for Early Head Start is 1999. Families are selected to receive Early Head Start services using the federal poverty guidelines and the agencyĆ¢??s criteria for enrollment.

BRAD Early Head Start is a comprehensive child development program that serves children from birth to 3, pregnant women, and their families. It is a child-focused program and has the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families.
