It’s Head Start Awareness Month

This October, we are thrilled to celebrate Head Start Awareness Month! Our Head Start program serves our two county area across 14 different locations. Through the program, we are able to assist children ages 0-5 each year by providing education, childcare, nutrition, and additional resources to Head Start families as a whole.

Head Start programs partner with families to help America’s children succeed in school and in life. Serving more than a million children from birth to 5 each year, Head Start programs are integral contributors to the human services ecosystem in almost every community. The Head Start program is an investment in a child, a family, and a community. This month, the Office of Head Start (OHS) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is highlighting the wide variety of services Head Start programs offer enrolled children and families. At ACF, we work toward an America where children, youth, families, individuals, and communities are resilient, safe, healthy, and economically secure. Join us in celebrating Head Start Awareness Month and the ways Head Start programs partner with other ACF programs to leverage comprehensive services for children and families.”
