Working for a warm Christmas
West Garland Head Start Center
Over 25% of children under the age of 5 live in poverty in U.S. About 30% of children under the age of five in Dallas County are living in poverty. Children in poverty are more likely to have health problems that go untreated, live in unsafe neighborhoods, attend poorer schools, are at higher risk for substance abuse and teen pregnancy, as well as, face other problems. Nearly 65% of 3 & 4-year-old don’t have access to quality early child development. The children in the Head Start program exhibit at least a 30% growth in the areas of social, emotional, and academic achievement in a year’s time.
The agency provides comprehensive child development services, including complete medical and dental health care, education, nutritious meals and social services.
Head Start helps parents find placement in educational programs, provides counseling and substance abuse education and refers families to agencies that offer GED, literacy and English-as-a-second-language classes.
I want to help this wonderful place to reach the goal of collecting the winter coats for the children.
They need winter coats for children ages 3 to 5 years old
