Help our Head Start Programs

"Education Secretary Arne Duncan has said 70,000 preschool kids could be removed from Head Start."

 It's time to pay attention to the budget cuts especially those that can affect our children. Headstart is facing a 5-9% funding cut. We need to speak out and let our voice be heard. Families benefit from the program and if you are one of those families, please take the time to tell your senators (McCain and Flake) and your representative (Ron Barber, Raul Grijalva, or Ann Kirkpatrick for Arizona). 

 Here are some links to do so before MARCH 1ST! -representatives -senator
