United is funded to serve 1,135 children 0-5 and pregnant women through our Head Start and Early Head Start Programs. These programs provide educational opportunities to both parent and child. In harmony with our Mission, To educate and assist disadvantaged young children and their families to be prepared for Kindergarten and life, both programs meet the needs of the child and family. Through direct service or referral, families are ensured assistance with child development, adult education, child and adult health services, disability services, emergency services, and mental health services. A healthy, happy child is a child ready to learn.
Under the leadership of Johnny Bryant and Kim Rice, our Head Start/Early Head Start Program has embraced the use of technology and the ability to share and gather information as a tool toward continuous improvements. During that time, emphasis on our Mission Statement helped to ensure that we continue to reach for the stars. Enough is not enough. At United, excellence is the only goal.
