Self Sufficiency
Head Start aims to guide families in creating goals which lead them on a path to living self-determined lives – including the freedoms of self-sufficiency.  Head Start is dedicated to promoting the empowerment of people by helping them to identify and capitalize on their strengths.
Health
Head Start provides a comprehensive program of health services to each child by promoting preventative health and early intervention.  Families are provided skills, insights, and linkages needed to obtain ongoing health care.
