Head Start is a family development program that offers comprehensive services for your child as well as your entire family. Part of a highly successful national program, ABCD Head Start has locations throughout Boston, Malden and Everett with operating hours based on your needs and eligibility. Our services concentrate on your child’s education, nutrition, and physical and mental health.

Families applying for Head Start must meet certain eligibility criteria. Enrollment priority is given to low income families (those with annual household income below 130% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines), homeless families, foster children, and families who receive public assistance (TANF/TAFDC, EAEDC, & SSI). Families applying for Head Start will be required to complete an application with an Enrollment Specialist and provide documentation of annual household income, residency, and age of the applying child.
