The Family Nurturing Center

The Family Nurturing Center of McComb is designed to ensure economic stability of teen parents and their children through a program of educational awareness and parenting skills. We will also provide an age appropriate developmental program for children enrolled in the center to ensure the readiness of children to enter into an educational program upon their departure from the Family Nurturing Center.

The program was created to help teen parents of the McComb School District stay in school and graduate with their class. Our overall objective is to increase graduation rates and decrease dropout rates among our youth.

Referrals to the program can be made to the program coordinator, school nurse or school counselors.

First Steps

First Steps is a program that matches the unique needs of infants and toddlers who have developmental delays with professional resources within the community.

If you have a child up to three years old, First Steps will provide educational material and other resources to help you recognize developmental problems as early as possible.

Child Find

Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of Early Intervention Program (Part C) or Preschool Special Education (Part B/619) services of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

To receive Early Intervention Program or Special Education, children must meet eligibility guidelines according to the IDEA. States have different eligibility guidelines for their Early Intervention Program and Special Education services. In addition to children with disabilities, some states have elected to provide early intervention services for infants and toddlers who are at risk of developmental delay and their families.
