TELL CITY – Lincoln Hills Development Corp. officials and approximately 150 guests celebrated the opening of the new Perry County Early Head Start offices May 24 at 321 Ninth St., in Tell City.


The facility is the former Coca-Cola Bottling Company, and LHDC recently completed a major rehabilitation and renovation of this historic building, including the construction of offices to house the Early Head Start program and staff.
Early Head Start and Head Start staff were on hand to answer questions and help guests tour the renovated facility. Early Head Start provides comprehensive home-based child development services for infants, toddlers and pregnant women, while the Head Start program provides early childhood education services to 3-5 year old preschoolers. LHDC operates both of these programs in Perry, Spencer, Crawford and Harrison counties with federal funding received through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
