Upbring can help your child get a Head Start.
Upbring is responsible for managing the Head Start and Early Head Start programs for more than 250 children between four program centers:
- Wharton and Palacios – Head Start
- El Campo and Bay City – Head Start and Early Head Start
Head Start was established in 1965 and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. For more than fifty years, the program has provided far-reaching educational opportunities, early childhood development, and care for children in need. Head Start programs work with families across the United States to help ensure children have access to needed services and resources. More than one million children are served by Head Start programs every year, including children in every U.S. state and territory and in American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) communities.
Head Start programs work with families to ensure they have the means to obtain health insurance, services for children with disabilities, adequate housing, job training and more.
