This book describes the experience of families who are participants in an Early Head Start program for families with infants and toddlers who live in poverty. The author examines the lives of the families as they go about their daily routines, attend the Head Start center, and receive home visits. Hallock seeks to understand the complex relationships between families and the Early Head Start home visitors who are there to support them and help improve their lives. This book provides insight on how institutions such as Head Start can influence relationship-based work, providing hope for families and home visitors as they work towards explicit shared goals.
