An Allegan County Grant will focus on opening an Early On Head Start Center in Plainwell and creating program openings to enroll kids in existing daycare centers. Program officials also will work with the Even Start program, which offers low-income parents of young children the opportunity to earn their high school degree.
The two-year program annually will provide services to 78 pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years old, said Cathy Weirick Farnsworth, assistant director of Allegan County Resource Development Committee. The services range from child care to early-education for infants and toddlers.
The federal grant is one of 600 awarded nationwide through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Congratulations to our partner Cathy Farnsworth in Allegan on her work towards this project.
