Parent, Family and Community Engagement:

Head Start believes that "it takes a village to raise a child." Therefore, a true partnership must be formed between the program, the participating families, and the community in which they are located. Services are provided in a manner to involve parents, other family members, community members and community businesses or agencies. With the "village" working together, most issues can be tackled and overcome.

General services provided by the program are parent activities (field trips, classes, etc.), leadership development and training opportunities, family goal setting, assistance with basic needs, referrals to other agencies, advocacy activities, and family literacy opportunities.
Opportunities to be involved in the decision-making of the program exist through the Parent Center Committee, Advisory Committees and the Policy Council.
