The Family Enrichment Program serves 100 families who reside in Chicago Heights, Park Forest and Harvey. Services are provided under the joint efforts of the SPEED and ECHO Joint Agreements. The overall goal of the Program is prevention of school failure through enhancement of the parent/child relationship. Services include coordination (case management), home visits, parent/child interaction groups, parent education classes, social support groups, and family field trips. In collabortion with the Family Literacy Program of Prairie State College, classes in Adult Basic Education, GED, and English as a Second Language are offered to enrolled parents. Interdiciplinary services are provided throughout the school year, and are supported by discrete functions, such as intake and family outings, during the summer months. Services are offered in the home, at the Hickory Hill "early Learning Center" in Park Forest, at Gavin School in Chicago Heights, and at Lowell School in Harvey. Interagency agreements with the involved school districts and Head Start programs ensure that the children enrolled in the Family Enrichment Program easily transition into districts' prekindergarten programs or the area Head Start programs. The staff are certified and credentialed personnel in the area of child development and family support. The Program collaborates with the disability specialists of the Parent/Infant Program whenever needed. The Progams's administrative office is located at Hickory Hill Early Learning Center.
