Family Engagement Specialist

Because our agency has a two generational approach, we focus on the family unit. Family Engagement Specialists play a pivotal role as a liaison between the students in our Head Start and Early Head Start Programs and their parents/guardians. They promote, provide education, engagement opportunities, and skill development to parents.

Family Engagement Specialists maintain record keeping, data collection, and they assist, support, and promote parent events. They also promote regular routine attendance and will develop attendance plans for families of children with low attendance. They work with community partners to help families/guardians access local resources.
