A family partnership agreement is not just a form that you fill out. It is the process through which staff support families in Head Start. Thus, it is an interactive experience that happens over time and can include many different types of interactions. This process is not a one-time event. There are many types of interactions that can be a part of the process, such as:
Helping families identify and reach their goals; identify and use their strengths and resources; and advocate for their children.
Offering opportunities for family members to enhance their skills or build new ones;
Providing access to community resources, and emergency or crisis assistance when needed and supporting any pre-existing family plans.
