ESSEX -- The 4-year-old Young Family Support Center in the Middleborough Plaza shopping center on Back River Neck Road will receive more federal and private money to expand services and buy a new van if the Council Council, as expected, votes its approval tonight.

A $75,000 federal grant would be used to cover the costs for 16 months of a new home-visiting program designed to help young parents -- often teen-agers -- of children under age 3 improve their skills in household management and child care.

In addition, a $15,000 federal grant will pay for a van to take young parents to the center for high school studies and for job training. The council also must approve acceptance of $269 in state and private funds for school supplies and transportation costs.

Henson and businessmen Walter P. Hill, Earl Scott, Andrew Woods and Tyrone Taborn will be honored Friday at a breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
