Voices of Head Start:

“LCHS means everything to me and my family. My daughter was first enrolled in the Early Head Start program and is now in a Head Start classroom, where she is becoming an amazing individual. The program has been so helpful to her and has also given me the opportunity to achieve my goals and has put me on the path to a career that I have always dreamed of. Head Start has helped me to become a better mother, wife, and hopefully, one day, teacher.”
