United is funded to serve 1,059 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 Empower Generations of children and families through Relationships, High-Quality Early Childhood services and Connection with community resources, our program meets 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.
Through our Vision to provide a dynamic and inclusive environment that inspires children and families from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to promote a love of learning and to respect and protect healthy, meaningful relationships, United is prepared to meet the children where they are and implement a plan to guide the children though appropriate skill development to reach their age expectation and school readiness goals and beyond.
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.
Emphasis on our Mission Statement helps to ensure that we continue to reach for the stars. Enough is not enough. At United, excellence is the goal.
