Head Start Private Pay Option

Sunshine and Smiles
Sunshine & Smiles is an intergenerational play group. The group, facilitated by a volunteer, allows parents and their typically pre-school age children and nursing home residents to connect and interact. The group meets once a month and benefits all involved. As one resident at Rosewalk Village said, “This is the best day I’ve ever had.” These visits are especially meaningful to those residents whose family members are not able to visit very often. Children who don’t live near their grandparents or great-grandparents also benefit by getting to spend time with an older generation.
Transitions Self Sufficiency Program
Family development consultants partner with client families to work on action plans that lead to overall goal of self sufficiency. This is a free and voluntary program in which families are encouraged to grow in many areas, depending on the situation of each family.

Past programs have focused on health issues, financial topics, recreational and fitness activities, as well as simply highlighted some neat places to visit in our community.
