Ashby House is fortunate to have a collaborative relationship with USD 305 Heartland Programs. At the present moment, children of Ashby House clients are fast-tracked into both Heartland’s Early Head Start and Head Start programs. In an effort to increase this collaboration, both organizations have created a new Early Head Start school that is housed in Ashby House’s Cornerstone House.
The goal of this collaboration will be to get children of Ashby House clients immediately placed in Early Head Start. Ashby House feels that early education for the vulnerable populations it serves, is essential to providing these children with the skills and resources to both excel at school and enjoy learning.
