Getting young children and their families ready for school and ready for life
The Office of Head Start (OHS) helps young children from low-income families prepare to succeed in school through local programs. Head Start and Early Head Start programs promote children’s development through services that support early learning, health, and family well-being.
Head Start Vision Statement
The vision of Allen Action Agency, Inc. Head Start and Community is that the children become actively engaged with each other in academic and social interactions. We believe this can be accomplished through continuous efforts to collaborate and learn from one another.
Head Start Mission Statement
Allen Action Agency, Inc. Head Start Program believes that all children can achieve at their appropriate developmental level by teaching children positive growth in Social and Emotional behavior and attitudes.
Income guidelines since 1982 for the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia can be calculated by addition using the figures shown below. (This simple calculation procedure gives correct guideline figures for each year, but it is not identical to the procedure by which the income guidelines are calculated from the icome thresholds each year; see an example calculation.) Before 1982, the income guidelines were issued by the Office of Economic Opportunity/Community Services Administration.
