HEAD START PROGRAM
Our Head Start program has received the federal government’s Certificate of Excellence award. This Head Start program was one of two in the state of Virginia to receive it. Children are receiving quality pre-school services; parents are following through on individual and family partnership agreements: job search, GED/ESL, financial literacy, health and wellness, volunteerism in the community and the program. Fathers are increasing their engagement with their children whether they are living in the same home as the child or not. Fathers are continuously learning strategies and participating in trainings that equip them to be better fathers. Non-English speaking parents have learned English and like their English speaking counterparts have successfully found employment, received Associate degrees and improved the quality of their life in many other ways.
