Prevention & Early Intervention

We love to consider our children the inventors, dreamers, and architects of the future. However, the sad reality is that some children today are homeless or will become homeless at some point in their lives.

Fortunately, through programs such as H.I.P.P.Y. and the Charlotte County Community Schools Homeless Education Project, children and families have support, tools, and opportunities that would not otherwise be given to them to help keep them happy, healthy, and housed.

Charlotte County Community Schools – Homeless Education Project

The goal of the Charlotte County Public Schools Homeless Education Project is to help students in transition achieve academic success.


Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is an evidenced-based program that works with families in the home to support parents in their critical role as their child’s first and most important teacher.

HIPPY strengthens communities and families by empowering parents to actively prepare their children for success in school.
