The Salvation Army Early Head Start Program, located within
the Salvation Army Lied Renaissance Center at 3612 Cuming Street, is a federally funded home-based and center-based program that works to:

  • enhance children's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development;
  • assist pregnant women to access comprehensive prenatal and postpartum care;
  • support parents' efforts to fulfill their parental roles; and
  • help parents move toward self-sufficiency.

The Early Head Start program provides weekly, in-home visits based around early childhood education for home-based families and bi-weekly home visits for center-based and expecting families.  Home-based services are open to 91 children and pregnant women, and center-based services work with 20 children in two locations for a total funded enrollment of 111 children and pregnant women.

The program partners with two child care sites to provide center-based services for families who are working or going to school full time. 

  • St. Cecilia Child Care Center, located at 3869 Webster St., provides care for eight children;

  • Child Saving Institute located on the corner of  46th & Dodge St., Serves 12 children.
