To be sure that we reach parents that may need a little extra support, the program scores each application. Families with high social support needs, children with disabilities, teen parents, those having limited income and those referred by our community partners are given a higher ranking than those having access to other avenues of assistance.
Once you are enrolled in the program, your family will remain eligible for services up to child’s 3rd birthday.
