Head Start Referrals

Head Start is a federally funded early education program available to children, ages 0-5. Children are taught in either a center-based or home-based setting to prepare them for kindergarten. In Frazier Park, a Head Start representative meets one-on-one in the home as well as coordinating monthly socials to develop children’s social skills. The Center can provide eligible families with a Head Start referral.

Preschool Scholarships

The Center offers preschool scholarships to help local children prepare for Kindergarten. Low-income families can apply in the summer one year before entering Kindergarten. The scholarship program covers three days per week for free and also includes assessments to monitor the child’s progress and tips on school readiness.

Kindergarten Enrollment Assistance

The Center can provide Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten enrollment applications as well as assistance with completing them. We can also advise families on deadlines and age requirements.

Boys & Girls Club

The Center was instrumental in establishing the Frazier Mountain Boys & Girls Club, and has continued to support it since its opening in 2006. The Boys & Girls Club (located at Frazier Park Elementary) offers a daily Afterschool Program, a Summer Camp, and a Friday Night Teen Program in order to provide fun and support for mountain youth.

Single Parent Program

The Single Parent Program increases the capacity of single parents in the area through a 10-week course. Throughout the sessions, single parents receive training and support in areas including finance and budgeting, career and college opportunities, stress relief, relationship building, and more. These sessions help build confidence, trust, and hope for the future. A weekly stipend helps cover childcare and transportation costs to attend.

Transportation Assistance for Families

We provide bus tickets for families with young children, ages 0-5, for a variety of family support services and medical appointments.
