(5/22/18) — Low income families living on the southside of Monroe have another place to bring their children for individualized care.
Early Head Start has opened its doors to another center on Winnsboro Road. The programs raise language and literacy skills ,which is incredibly helpful when children start elementary school.
A $2.2 million grant is allowing the children’s coalition to expand its programs.
“It’s an opportunity to re-purpose a building into something that provides all these services from the children,” says Frank Wilcox.
“If you have children that meet the age limit, bring them. Sign them up because it’s a good program and she’s exceeded from the age up until 3,” says LaDarrica Sims.
The Monroe Housing Authority has donated the building rent-free and upgraded the surrounding area.
