Head Start Funding
Our agency was forced to cut 161 children from Head Start and Early Head Start. Restoration of the Sequestration cut has been restored and will take effect our next program year!
Jolie Whatton, our 2012-2013 Policy Council chairperson, met with Senator John McCain about ending the Head Start sequester.
She delivered over 1000 letters of support from Child-Parent Centers parents, community, Board and Policy Council members.
