I was able to see the results and believe the Head Start program makes a REAL difference.
... I'm a witness that Head Start works. I have been employed for 40 years and I still maintain employment with Lutheran Services Florida (LSF) Head Start.
With a hand up from programs like Head Start, I was able to graduate near the top of my Texas public high school class, from Stanford University, and from the master in business administration program at San Francisco State.
