Head Start transcends early childhood education because of its unique comprehensive services that address the social and structural determinants of health that perpetuate poverty in America. Head Start works with the whole child—mind, body, and spirit.
We want to share these amazing transformation stories of Head Start children and families in local media outlets in every community across the nation.
It’s fun, has a real impact on Head Start children and families and will foster new partnerships and understanding within our communities and law enforcement nationwide.
