Head Start and Early Head Start programs engage in collaborations with community partners, including child welfare agencies that support families during some of their most challenging times. These partnerships work best when there is a clear, shared vision and purpose, strong leadership support, thoughtful planning and communication, and consistent engagement of each partner over time.

In this final webinar, learn how early childhood programs and child welfare agencies can work together to protect children and strengthen families.
