At-risk, low-income families in Indian River County need free, quality childcare SO THEY CAN AFFORD TO WORK! Economic Opportunities Council of Indian River County currently offers Head Start for Indian River County children ages 3-5. We are raising funds to add an Early Head Start Program to serve 8 pregnant moms and 80 children birth to Age 3. This way, we will be able to offer families free child care and early childcare and education for their children from birth to age 5--kindergarten. Children attending EOC Early Head Start and Head Start will be kindergarten ready at age 5. EOC is working to make sure at-risk, low-income children and families achieve their full potential. Early Head Start and Head Start families have the opportunity to become economically self-sufficient, and end generational poverty one family at a time!
