Head Start helps those who would otherwise have no help at all - Clay Center Dispatch On-Line: Local News

Head Start helps those who would otherwise have no help at all

Posted: Thursday, June 6, 2013 1:22 pm | Updated: 3:21 pm, Thu Jan 23, 2014.

Note: This is the first in a two-part series on Early Head Start and its impact on local families and children. This part includes accounts of children who have gone through the program. In part 2, former Head Start students, now adults, reflect on how the program affected their lives.
