SOUTHERN OREGON HEAD START
ABOUT HEAD START
Head Start is the nation’s largest early childhood education program. In Southern Oregon, our mission is for children to enter school healthy, ready to learn, and with age-appropriate skills. We support family well-being and nurturing relationships between children and parents, and encourage lifelong learning for everyone in the family.
DONATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE

By supporting our programs – Head Start, Early Head Start, The Family Connection, and LISTO – you’re investing in the future of our community and economy. You can make a difference, and give children and families a head start toward success in school and throughout their lives!
