A quality early childhood learning experience is the foundation for a child’s lifelong learning. It’s the cornerstone of success in school and in life.

At Detroit Head Start, we believe every child deserves just that — a head start. We offer life-changing services to our children and their families, including early learning, access to health care, connections and resources for job training, free diapers, employment services and financial stability training, among others.

Early Head Start and Head Start are federally funded programs that “promote school readiness to young children from low-income families through agencies in their local community.” In Detroit, ten local, trusted service agencies – Matrix Human Services, Starfish Family Services, Southwest Solutions, Focus: HOPE, Development Centers, United Children and Families, New St. Paul Tabernacle, Children’s Center, Renaissance Head Start and The Order of the Fishermen – provide comprehensive early childhood learning at no cost to qualifying families through the Head Start program.
