Family Services 2

Charleston County School District Head Start/Early Head Start provides parents and families with the necessary skills, resources and knowledge to identify and use their own strengths in becoming a self-sufficient family.

With the help from a Family Service Specialist (FSS), parents and families will develop a plan for meeting the concerns and goals of the family. This is done through the establishment of a Family Partnership Agreement and on-going documentation of the progress toward achieving family goals.

Family Service Specialists (FSS) are also available for emergency or crisis intervention in areas such as food, housing, transportation, clothing, health and dental care. Head Start/Early Head Start staff will follow-up with parents to determine if the services they received met their needs.
