CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF OPPORTUNITY WITH HEAD START

“Education is not a problem,” President Lyndon B. Johnson said 50 years ago. “Education is an opportunity” Head Start has opened that window of opportunity for the nation’s most at-risk children and families since Johnson signed legislation creating the program. From August 2014 through June 2015, the HACC Head Start community – and the nation –  will celebrate our shared commitment to giving our communities’ most vulnerable children a window of opportunity unlike any other. Please visit HACC’s Early Childhood and Home Visiting Programs site to learn more about our Head Start and Early Head Start Program.
