"Galen"

“Galen” was evacuated by boat from his flooded home in rural Coffey County. Red Cross helped him get a motel room, but this money soon ran out. Galen used his remaining funds for medications and food. ECKAN assisted him with 7 motel days so he will be able to return to his home and begin clean up. Without ECKAN’s help, Galen would have become homeless.

The Coffey County Home Based program serves 20 children and their families through comprehensive home visits.

Enrolled children and their parent/guardian will meet weekly for 90 minutes in the home. The home visitor will provide educational services to share with the parent/guardian while modeling and interacting with the child. Educational home visits include a focus on nutrition, health, dental, transition, developmental and parent involvement. Socialization events occur two times per month, which include a group activity for all home based children and families to meet in a larger group setting.

ECKAN Head Start promotes health development for all children. In order for the program and the child’s family to be certain a child is healthy, a variety of screenings must be completed.  All children in the Head Start program should receive the screenings and exams on the application checklist.  Parents should review the checklist, before attending doctor’s appointments, to ensure they can advocate for their child, and ensure the appropriate screenings are completed.

Please click here for the application checklist for a list of the necessary screenings and exams.

If you have any questions, contact the Family Service worker at your local Head Start center, or contact the Home Visitor at (620) 364-8223.
