Early Head Start (EHS) provides comprehensive home based services to pregnant women and children from birth through age three. Our program focuses on healthy prenatal outcomes, enhances the development of infants and toddlers, and promotes strong, healthy families to prepare children for later success in school.
- EHS Home Based Program
- Early Head Start's home based program is offered in Harrisburg, Steelton and Carlisle in Pennsylvania. Families participate in weekly visits in their home from a home visitor who supports the child's learning and development and encourages positive parent-child relationships. Each weekly visit lasts for an hour and a half. Home visitors also provide families with information about community resources.
- Pregnant women who enroll in the home based program participate in weekly visits that focuses on prenatal care, delivery, postnatal care, and care of their newborn.
- The home based program also includes two family socialization days each month.
