Home Programs > Home Visiting

Our Early Head Start Home Visiting Program provides comprehensive, home-based services designed to support the developmental needs of children from birth to age three and their families. This program includes weekly x-minute home visits and bi-weekly socializations, focusing on fostering healthy child development, and supporting parents in their role as their child's first and primary teachers.


We now offer a hybrid Home Visiting model where parents can receive 30 minute services online with our Home Visitors. These comprehensive services aim to provide continuous support from pregnancy through the early years of a child's life, enhancing family well-being and promoting positive outcomes for children.

We also offer center-based programs for eligible families. Regardless of which program is right for your family, our team of highly trained, passionate professionals is ready to help you and your child be ready for school.  


Early Head Start is provided at no-cost to eligible families. Eligibility is determined by a number of factors, including family size and income, in addition to other qualifying indicators. Families receiving assistance and those experiencing homelessness are categorically eligible.  


The first step in applying for Early Head Start is to submit an interest form. Once submitted, an Intake Specialist will contact you to begin the process of determining eligibility.

The Enrollment Process

Completing the interest form on the website is the first step. After that, an intake specialist will contact you to complete an interview. You will need to provide proof of income, residency, and child age. Expectant mothers will need to provide proof of pregnancy and must be a resident of Mecklenburg County.

Once the interest form and interview are completed, your information is then submitted to a Selection and Enrollment Specialist for further review. A Selection and Enrollment Specialist will place you on the waiting list. Children and families are not assigned a waitlist number. We evaluate each upcoming seat to serve the children and families with the greatest need.

If selected, a Selection and Enrollment Specialist will contact you by email to let you know about placement and next steps.
