Who We Serve

Our early intervention program is an in-home service available to qualifying families throughout the regions we serve. We offer services to families in all Kentucky counties as well as several communities in southern Indiana. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about the areas we serve.

Our early intervention program is available for children from birth to three years old. Families must qualify for the Kentucky or Indiana First Steps program to receive continued care.
