Board of Directors

Meet our Board of Directors

Members of the Board are driven by their desire to make a big difference in the lives of low-income children and families in their community. They help the Head Start and Early Head Start organization set and achieve goals for children’s healthy development and school readiness, families’ economic well-being, and community empowerment.
