Family Development Services

Prepare them to fill your shoes. We can help provide the foundation our children need to become future role models. Because we believe “a seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible.”

Upcoming Events:

A Head Start for the Winter Season!

Family Development Services is honored to present our Head Start and Early Head Start Families of our Service Center 2, Southwest, Eagledale & Pike Plaza with an opportunity to get A Head Start For The Winter Season for their families with an event that will provide their children with educational, gross motor and social/emotional activities, educational information for parents and gifts for their children.

We are thankful for a grant from Toys For Tots and honored to partner with IVY Tech’s Community College and their Early Childhood Education department head, Diane Smith, and her students whose volunteer efforts have been priceless in making this event possible.

A Head Start for the Winter Season event will take place on Saturday, December 8th, 2018, at IVY Tech’s Illinois/Fall Creek building. Many volunteer opportunities from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. are available via the Sign-Up link below. We ask that volunteers wear a red or green shirt, sweater or top.
