Delta Health Alliance Head Start and Early Head Start is holding an enrollment event Friday for Vicksburg and Warren County children.
Enrollment will be held at the Jackson Street Community Center, 923 Walnut St. in Vicksburg, Friday, Sept. 18, from 10 a.m. until noon and from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Head Start provides services to children of low-income families that can help to build a foundation for the children’s future success. Early Head Start provides quality care to infants and toddlers through comprehensive child care. Between the two programs, children from the age of 8 weeks up to age 5 can take advantage of the services provided.
To complete your child’s enrollment, please bring the following documents:
- Proof of birth
- Proof of income
- Immunization Record
- Medicaid Card or number (if the child receives Medicaid)
- Picture ID
You must be the biological parent or legal guardian of the child. If you are the legal guardian, you must bring documentation to verify your guardianship.
If your child was enrolled last year with the previous grantee, MAP, your child still has a slot in the program; however, you must complete new enrollment documents with DHA. If your child was in the Early Head Start Program last year and your child turned 3 by or before Sept. 1, you must complete a new application.
Delta Health Alliance is striving to locate all Warren county families that were enrolled in the previous program, as well as all other families with children from 8 weeks old up to the age of 5 to enroll them into the Head Start/Early Head Start Program. If you have questions, please visit deltahealthalliance.org or go to the Facebook page. The sites are updated daily with new information. You can also email questions to [email protected] or leave a voicemail message at 662-686-3949. All messages left between the hours of 8- 4 p.m. will receive a same-day response.
