Lake County Office of Education Healthy Start

Healthy Start is a statewide initiative placing comprehensive support services for children and families at individual school sites. It gives schools, in partnership with public and private service providers, a unique opportunity to restructure systems to better meet the needs of children and families.

Healthy Start offers a wide variety of services that focus on supporting academic success, and building personal strengths for children, youth and families. We assist students so they can come to school ready to learn. To view the list of sites and contact information, use the link in left column.
