Healthy Families of Delaware Opportunities is a voluntary program that initiates services with families who are either expecting a child or has a child under three months old. The program will provide services to families until the child either turns three and enters Head Start or a preschool program, or enters kindergarten. There are currently no income guidelines for the Healthy Families Program.

Head Start


Income guidelines are 100% of poverty level. All interested are encouraged to apply, regardless of income, as we are allowed a limited number of over-income slots. The child must be three years of age by December 1 of the current year to participate. If the child turns three after December 1, they may start on their birthday if a slot is available. Please send the following with your application: proof of income for the past twelve months; copy of child's birth certificate and copy of child's security card.
