The Housing Authority of Covington (HAC) is committed to Early Childhood Education (ECE). We believe that ECE yields many long-term benefits for children. Therefore, it is our commitment to help them have “better futures.”
HAC recognizes that quality child-care and pre-school programs can be challenging to access for our residents at times. Therefore, HAC staff members will work diligently with families to determine what support they need to obtain that access. HAC does not do this work alone. We align with local community partners, our local school district, and surrounding nonprofits. Our partnerships allow for efficient efforts that combine a high level of proficiency and resources to a greater outcome.
Our partners include, but not limited to:
1. City of Covington – Ready Ready Covington
2. Covington Independent Public Schools
3. Kenton County Public Library
4. UMC Food Ministry
5. NKCAC – HeadStart
6. Learning Grove
