1998Child-Parent Centers, Inc. began the implementation process of the Early Head Start program with 199 pregnant women, infants and toddlers in Tucson and Safford. Through a unique partnership, 70 of these participants received Early Head Start services through the Blake Foundation. The emphasis on delivery of quality services continued with the restructuring of program support and supervision. Child-Parent Centers also partnered with CODAC Behavioral Health Services for a full-day Head Start Program. CPC's partnerships with the public schools include collaboration on services for children with disabilities, curriculum models and food programs.
