Head Start



For 50 years Community Action’s Head Start Program made a tremendous impact on lives of families with young children. Today the Program  works with 539 children and their families  in Hays and Caldwell counties at 14 different locations.

Head Start knows that children love to learn and we work hard to help them in their search for knowledge and skills. Head Start is a safe and caring place for children to learn and grow. As the parent you are your child’s first and best teacher and we need you to work with us to be a good role model as your child learns and grows with us.

Head Start gives families a chance to grow by providing many support services. The more time you spend working with us, the more we will be able to help you and your child to learn, grow and succeed. Many Head Start parents and families have gained skills that helped them get jobs and an education. Head Start offers tools that can help you reach your goals for yourself and your family.
