Our History

Baraga-Houghton-Keweenaw Child Development Board, Inc. (BHK) is a non-profit 501(C)(3) community agency, founded in 1974, and the region's largest provider of education related services, serving over 2,000 families annually. BHK currently delivers multiple collaborative and outcome-based programs funded by state, federal, foundation and local sources including Early Head Start, Head Start, Great Start Readiness Program, extended care, Great Explorations summer and after-school programming and AmeriCorps. Since its inception, BHK has been a Head Start grantee, adding Early Head Start services in 1999. BHK expanded programs in 2003 to include after school and summer programming for school-age children.

Strong, long-standing relationships with local agencies and area schools assure continued coordination and collaboration in delivery of high-quality services meeting the unique needs of children and families in our communities.

Long recognized as a leader in early childhood education in the State of Michigan, BHK was the sole state nominee to a national competition in which in 2010, BHK was designated a National Center of Excellence by the federal Administration for Children and Families. Nominated as a leader in innovative and effective, high quality programming for young children and chosen, in part, due to its successful work in reunification of families and child wellness.
