Avancemos is one of more than a dozen sites in southwest Detroit where Southwest Solutions is locating its Thrive by Five program, which is part of the Thrive by Five Detroit collaborative. Thrive by Five offers Head Start classes (for children 3-5) and Early Head Start (for children 0-3 and pregnant mothers). Early Head Start offers both center-based and home-based options. The center-based Early Head Start at Avancemos is currently full, although families may still apply and be added to the waiting list. Early Head Start slots open up throughout the year as children turn three years old and proceed into Head Start. There are center-based Early Head Start openings at some of our other Thrive by Five centers.

Families living the zip codes of 48206, 48208, 48209, 48210, 48216 or 48217 are eligible to apply for our Thrive by Five program. There are other eligibility requirements, too. Interested families should call 313-596-4766 or write headstart@swsol.org.
