Family Services and Governance

Family Services and Governance in Head Start/Early Head Start (HS/EHS) is about building relationships with families that support family well-being, strong relationships between parents and their children, and ongoing learning and development for both parents and children.

Research tells us that parent and family engagement is crucial for young children’s learning and development and that strong community ties and resources help families raise their children in supportive environments. Head Start parental involvement has continually evolved over the years, and we have learned from our experience and research about what makes the best difference for children and families and is the key to success of our programs.
