El programa en el hogar Early Head Start de Foundling funciona en Puerto Rico y atiende a embarazadas, bebés y niños pequeños. El programa promueve fuertes relaciones entre padres e hijos y ayuda a proporcionar experiencias de aprendizaje temprano de alta calidad.

    Los servicios de educación de apoyo para la primera infancia para las familias nuevas y futuras son fundamentales para preparar a los niños para una oportunidad de por vida. El objetivo de nuestro programa Early Head Start es preparar a los niños pequeños de comunidades desatendidas para la preparación escolar para que cada uno tenga éxito en la escuela y en la vida después de la escuela. Para lograr este objetivo, brindamos servicios a niños y familias en áreas centrales de aprendizaje temprano, salud y bienestar familiar, al tiempo que involucramos a los padres y cuidadores como socios en cada paso del camino.

    Success Stories

    Providing community support during the pandemic

    Our Staten Island Community Partnership and Healthy Families programs have come together to help keep our neighbors in the North Shore section of Staten Island healthy and safe throughout the pandemic. One of their largest initiatives is a weekly grocery giveaway program that has provided 100 families with essential items, including fruits, vegetables, protein-rich foods, toiletries, and more. Thanks to collaboration with community institutions and businesses – from churches to laundromats – our impassioned team engages with local residents and families to ensure that all of our neighbors have access to the resources they need.
