Children & Youth Services

Children deserve an equal opportunity to enjoy their childhood while learning to become responsible adults. Through our Children and Youth Programs, we deliver hope to our future generation.

We help parents find quality child care and provide financial assistance for children participating in our Child Care Certificate Program. We also provide other services including outreach to child care providers, eligibility determination, referrals, counseling and consumer education materials, issuing certificates, training, and monitoring unregulated providers.

Through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social, and other services, we promote school readiness by improving the social and cognitive development of children enrolled in our Head Start Programs. Parent and community involvement is the hallmark of this program making it one of the most successful pre-school programs in the country.

The child and youth services offered by the Tennessee HRAs are listed below.
