Give children and families in your community a Head Start!
HCS Head Start strengthens your community by supporting children and families, and providing early educational opportunities, health care, nutrition, and guidance.
Research shows that your community is likely to receive up to $9 in benefits for every $1 invested in Head Start. These benefits include increased earnings, employment, and family stability, decreased welfare dependency, crime costs, grade repetition, and special education.
“Investment in birth-to-five early education for disadvantaged children helps prevent the achievement gap…Head Start graduates tend to be more persistent in their education, more inclined to healthy behaviors and less inclined to be involved in criminal activity.”
James Heckman, Professor of Economics and Nobel Laureate
