In 1966, Community Action Southwest (CAS) opened one of the first Head Start Programs across the nation. In 1999, our agency received funding to expand programming for children and families through the Early Head Start program. In the 48 years since, nearly 20 thousand children in Washington & Greene Counties have attended CAS Head Start.
CAS Head Start alumni have gone on to become business owners and artists, musicians and doctors, teachers, and exceptional parents to their own children. Those who have been touched by this program know the reality of how a Head Start in life leads to success.
If you are a CAS Head Start graduate or your child attended Head Start, tell us where you are now.
