The Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program (BFPC) provides education and support for pregnant and postpartum women to ensure a successful breast-feeding experience. The BFPC program is based on the FNS WIC Breastfeeding Model for Peer Counseling (formerly called Loving Support© Model for Peer Counseling).
Volunteers over the age of 55 are placed in classrooms and work one-on-one with children who have special needs. Volunteers receive stipends and can volunteer up to 40 hours per week.
Head Start provides free comprehensive early childhood education services in a classroom setting while engaging families.

This is safe and supervised out of school time programming including academic support, STEM projects, recreational games, and positive peer connections.
We are here for center-based daycares and in-home daycares looking for coaching and support on licensing, child development, and more.
