East Bay Community Action Program

Newport, Rhode Island

After years of operating single classroom Head Start sites across Newport County, often in areas not convenient for families, the East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) brought to life a strategic plan to develop a state of the art early learning center in a location convenient for families. Additionally, EBCAP strategically worked to consolidate and expand programming, creating significant efficiencies at a flagship location.
