PSFC In Action

Help Us Stuff the Bus

Join us at Staples in Stroudsburg on Saturday, August 20, to fill our bus with school supplies for Head Start children. Our Stuff the Bus community partner, 93.5 SBG, will be broadcasting live from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Halterman's Toyota in East Stroudsburg is the sponsor of this event.

Moving Days

Furniture and educational supplies were moved to our new building from our preschool classrooms at Clear Run, Swiftwater and Tobyhanna elementary centers. We are busy getting the Coolbaugh Township facility ready for the start of the new school year!

T-Ball Lesson

PSFC Family Advocate Justin Ortiz gives hitting tips to one of our preschoolers during a group T-Ball lesson this summer at Zacharias Pond in East Stroudsburg. Another instructional session for Head Start families is planned for September.

Now Hiring Staff!

With the purchase of our new building, we are taking applications for new positions: infant/toddler teachers, a school-age teacher/coordinator, classroom assistants and substitutes. Go to our Careers and Volunteering tab to learn more about applying and joining our team.

We own this building!

Our new facility will be opening soon. We will be serving preschoolers by September and offering care for infants/toddlers and before/after school care for K-3rd grade. Community agencies like WIC, Women's Resources, Pocono Alliance and Agency on Aging will be joining us soon. Click our Donate tab to support our plans!

Welcome Summer!

Children, staff and some family members enjoyed a picnic lunch at our East Stroudsburg Center. The summertime treats included corn on the cob, watermelon, hot dogs/burgers, salads and ice cream. Everyone had a great time outside in the sunshine!

A Golden Evening

Our 50th Anniversary Gala for Monroe County Head Start was a memorable occasion. The cocktail hour gave attendees a chance to socialize, enjoy hors d' oeuvres, look at photos and bid on silent auction items. Pictured are Keynote Speaker Blair Hyatt, executive director of the PA Head Start Association, and PSFC parents Jessica and Rick Kline.

LANAEYC Recognizes our High Quality Program

Our agency was presented with a certificate recognizing our STAR 4 and NAEYC accreditations during the spring conference of LANAEYC in Bethlehem. The honor also applauded our commitment and hard work towards "inspiring young minds to do great things." Teachers Mary Ann Ciccolella and Kelly Lehmann accepted the award.

Our Mission:

To provide resources for the evolving needs of community children and families, in support of efforts to achieve their goals.

Pocono Services For Families & Children

Pocono Services for Families and Children provides comprehensive, supportive services for young children and their families in Monroe County to promote success in school and life. A nonprofit agency, PSFC has been serving our community's most vulnerable young children and their families since 1965 and today serves over 200 children and families in six sites/13 classrooms in strategic locations around Monroe County. To better meet the varied and unique needs of our community, PSFC continues to expand services and implement new programs. Research proves a return of $7.00 on each $1.00 invested in early childhood education. PSFC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and its programs have earned a Keystone Stars 4-Star Merit Award, the highest state designation available.
