Caring Connections: Washington County’s Single Point of Entry, Caring Connections, is live and ready to take calls. This service will allow families with children birth to five to make one phone call and be referred to programs and services that they are eligible to enroll. It is our goal that every Washington County child will enter school ready to learn. This project is a collaborative effort of Washington County Health Department, Washington County Public Schools, Head Start of Washington County, Washington County Family Center and The Judy Center of Washington County. APPLES for Children serves as the coordinating agency for the project.
Good Roots Furniture Ministry: Good Roots furniture ministry is a ministry of First Christian Church in partnership with The Judy Center which tries to supply basic furniture needs for families. Their mission is simple: No child will eat or sleep on a floor.
