There are a number of things Head Start programs can do to support children and families while their communities are maintaining social distance. These resources can be shared with families to support home activities and family health. Staff should be in regular phone and electronic communication with families to the extent feasible, providing engagement and other program services. This section is regularly updated with the most relevant resources. All published resources are listed under Recent Updates.
OHS has empowered grantee leadership to make decisions that support Head Start children and families first, and also help others in need. We have full confidence you will do what you can to support your community needs and ensure your program’s mission is still the first priority.
