After receiving an expansion grant, the Center began work on multiple projects. The 507 Third Avenue building was renovated for a third time. The Suffolk Center was renovated and expanded to double its size. And, the Children’s Center began work on a new Early Head Start building in Smithfield at 240 James Street. At the same time, the Center opened Early Head Start classrooms at the Pruden Vocational-Technical Center in Suffolk.
The Early Head Start program expanded again with a federal grant in 2010. The Center now serves 256 Early Head Start children and pregnant women. The Texie Camp Marks Center went through a renovation project in 2011 and the Suffolk Children’s Center completed an addition to add three new Early Head Start classrooms.
