Head Start Stories

I hope to be the person that I needed—the person that Head Start made sure was there for my family when we needed it.

These two community members volunteer on the Sault Tribe Head Start Health Services Advisory Committee.

– Head Start program, Marie, MI

It has been my pleasure to give the same care and nurturing to children and families (at Head Start) that I and my children once received.

– Head Start administrator, Calvert County, MD

The Head Start initiative will forever be close to my heart because it is the very place where I began interacting with the world and it has made the difference in my life.

– Head Start parent and graduate, Coral Springs, FL

It gave me a jump start when I was going into kindergarten; I had already had interaction with other kids and knew how to do lots of stuff.
