Early Childhood, Family and Community Services

Providing Non-Traditional Services to Learners of All Ages

The Early Childhood, Family and Community Services (ECFCS) Division offers a variety of educational and supportive services to children, youth, adults and families.  Administrators build innovative partnerships with schools, government, businesses and communities to enhance the quality of life for all learners in the region.  The collective impact of these programs helps to move the lives of more than 10,000 children and families forward and, by utilizing one or more of our services, these families are able to enrich our region.   For more information, contact Dr. Catherine Lobaugh at catherine.lobaugh@aiu3.net.
