HS & EHS History
Local EHS History
In 1989 the Head Start Bureau committed to the development of 24 Comprehensive Child Development Research Programs across the United States. These programs were designed to support families with young children by offering comprehensive services through a coordinated service delivery model. These models utilized existing community resources and emphasized family strengths and family empowerment. From that model the Parent Child Centers (PCC) were developed. PICA operated a PCC program from 1991 to 1995. Then in 1998, PICA was awarded an Early Head Start program.
