Bauer Family Resources

About Bauer Family Resources

Bauer Family Resources has been serving the Tippecanoe County area since founder Grace Bauer started the agency in 1929 to serve the troubled "youngsters" in our community. Throughout the years, Bauer has changed names, buildings, and staff, but one thing remains the same: we are committed to serving the youth and families in our communities. With programs ranging from early childhood education to youth services to emergency relief for families in crisis, Bauer either has a program or knows where to go.

Infants & Young Children:

Bauer Early Care and Education operates the Head Start program, providing comprehensive services to children and families in Carroll, Clinton, Tippecanoe, and White counties. Early Head Start operates in Tippecanoe County only.


A true grassroots effort dating back to the 1920s, the Community Center serves to create community connections and increase the quality of life for all area residents. Our programs are engineered to enable all to learn, grow, and flourish.


All services provide life-long skills that promote the well-being of children and parents. Attainable goals, healthy coping skills, and resilience to trauma are all part of our comprehensive service.
