Community Action
The learning never stops for these kids!
Summer didn't mark the end of the school year for the children in the full-year program of Community Action Head Start. These kids, infant through 4 years, get the benefit of consistent care and high quality education all summer. This allows their parents to continue working their year-round jobs without a major disruption to their child's routine. The kids are having a great summer as they continue growing and learning in this enriching environment. And we couldn't do it without supporters like you. Thank you!
