NHSA and the Family Reading Partnership are joining forces to increase awareness and support for all for families to engage in reading aloud at home with the goal that every Head Start Child will grow up knowing that books are their Super Power.
The NHSA Book Club is designed to facilitate rich discussions among Head Start staff across the country about books that are relevant to the issues involved in working with vulnerable children, families, and communities.
In 1965, our nation made a commitment to open a window of opportunity for at-risk children through "Project Head Start." In the 50 years since, nearly 32 million Americans have attended Head Start. Are you one of them?
The NHSA Quality Initiative: Head Start Performance Excellence and Quality Recognition program is the only program of its kind recognizing and supporting excellence and outstanding performance of Head Start programs across the nation.
The Two Generations Together Initiative is focused on increasing awareness of two-generation adult education and job training models that are part of the comprehensive child and family services delivered by Head Start programs across the country.
The First Advocates Pilot Project will nurture parent voices and empower a select group of Head Start parents as leaders who can carry out a variety of strategic advocacy activities in their communities and around the nation.
NHSA is excited to be launching a partnership with the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) that will provide grants of over $160,000 over three years to five Head Start programs to enhance their family engagement work by incorporating NCFL's Family Learning program.
