About JPP

JPP began as an extension of Head Start, a no-cost early childhood education program Families opt in to the JPP program when they enroll children in Head Start. JPP coaches guide children as they transition from Head Start into public schools and support parents and caregivers as they work to achieve their self-defined goals.


Each family is connected to JPP until their youngest child graduates from high school, ensuring academic success and sustained family self-sufficiency.

JPP Program Components

Family voice and expertise drive the design of the JPP program. We implement a two-generation approach to persistently identify long-standing and emerging barriers that keep families from achieving financial stability. We foster self-defined success through coaching, not case management, to link services, resources, and community to equip families with the tools they need to adapt and overcome obstacles.

We coach,
not case work

Families play a vital role in program development and define their own success, dreams, and goals. JPP coaches work with families as equal partners in creating a pathway and developing solutions to overcome barriers to accomplish their self-defined goals.

We leverage whole-family programming

JPP employs a two-generation approach, recognizing that the well-being of both parents and children is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty. By identifying barriers and opportunities, we help families navigate pathways that lead to long-term prosperity.

We listen to family voice

Family voice helps us to align and link systems at the state and community level, such as eligibility standards, performance benchmarks, and coordinated administrative structures, while simultaneously pursuing improved outcomes for both parents and children.

JPP reminds you that you are worthy and capable.
