Rally to Support Head Start Programs

In Fitchburg, Leominster, Clinton, Winchendon, Athol and Gardner! Federal budget cuts due to "sequestration" mean an immediate 5 percent reduction in Head Start programs that will adversely impact children, families and workers! As a result, Head Start will have to close a week early this May. The impact on Head Start when it reopens this fall is still unknown, but the budget could be cut by as much as $250,000!

Rally for Head Start!
Saturday, May 4 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Fitchburg Upper Common
(Intersection of Boulder Dr. and Main St.)

Fitchburg, MA
About Head Start MOC's Head Start is a comprehensive center-based and family child care home-based preschool program which provides activities to assist children's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Classrooms are located throughout the Montachusett region and services are available to children ages three to five years from income eligible families. Head Start can be combined with child care services to create a full day program, allowing parents to seek or continue employment without compromising the health, safety, and development of their children.
