Our Story

In 1974, the BHK Child Development Board was founded to run the Head Start program in Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw Counties and serve as the child development planning agency for the three-county area. Since then, BHK has grown to provide high quality education services that range from support programs for expecting families to enrichment activities for high school students. BHK also offers opportunities to serve the community through AmeriCorps and earn educational awards towards college.

Our education programs are delivered by highly-trained staff using a broad array of research-based curricula. We aim to help turn our community into a place where every child and family has access to high-quality services that promote their health, independence and success.  

BHK Child Development is a non-profit agency organized under section 501c3 of the IRS code.
