|CAPSLO Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Receives Honor from National Head Start Association|
In late June 2013, the National Head Start Association (NHSA) called Bill Castellanos, CYFS Director, to congratulate the Migrant and Seasonal Head Start program on its selection as a Quality Initiative Program of Excellence. This designation is earned only by those Head Start and Early Head Start programs that consistently demonstrate excellence in program management and service performance, and that continually deliver robust outcomes for at-risk children birth to five years of age, pregnant women, and families, and their communities at large.
In January, NHSA sent the following letter regarding this award to Senator Barbara Boxer.
CAPSLO is honored by this distinction and feels very privileged to do the work that we do for farm worker families and their children across eight counties.
The Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County is committed to eliminating the causes of poverty by empowering low-income individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency through a wide array of community-based collaborations and programs.
All people should have an equal chance in life to achieve economic self-sufficiency and self-determination for themselves and their families. As a result of increased self-sufficiency, the community and its citizens will reap the benefits of a more productive, responsible and economically viable society.
