The Early Head Start Home Base Program provides free services to pregnant women and children up to the age of three years old—with or without developmental disabilities—who meet the Federal Income Poverty Guidelines and are residents of the District of Columbia.
Trained Home Visitors conduct a 90-minute session once a week to help enhance children's physical, social, emotional and intellectual development through activities provided from the Parents as Teachers Born to Learn Curriculum, and to assist pregnant women with prenatal and post partum supports and resources.
Enrollment for this program requires Proof of DC Residency (utility bill, telephone bill, lease or letter from landlord), Proof of Income (current paystub, W-2, TANF documents or letter from employer indicating wages), Birth Certificate(s) for enrolling child/children or a copy of health record. Priority is given to children with special needs, homeless, CGSA and families that fall below the federal income poverty guidelines.
