Keep Head Start Alive
- Christin Iliana Bermudez
- United States of America
A petition to keep Head Start under the Department of Health and Human Services where it will receive sufficient funding.
We recognize that the Head Start Program has served the families and young children of our community for 38 years. We believe that a community based organization can best meet the needs of the whole family through a comprehensive Head Start and Early Head Start programs. We ask that Head Start be preserved as it is in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where the safety net for the neediest of the community is guaranteed, and not be transfered to the Department of Education or to the states, where comprehensive services for children and families may be lost. Head Start educates children, strengthens families and contributes to a healthy community!!
