Executive Director

What an exciting time this is for our Head Start/Early Head Start and Healthy Families programs.

In a time when many businesses and organizations are downsizing, we have had the opportunity to grow
significantly. Imagine being able to expand by an additional 72 Early Head Start children and include
four more communities not previously served by Early Head Start. Think of adding fifteen to sixteen
additional staff to an already significant workforce. What an achievement to be able to literally touch
the lives of hundreds of couples, single parents, and adolescents and enhance their skills in relationship
building and decision making when choosing partners for life and improving current relationships. All
this and more has been made possible through the Administration and capable staff of Head Start at
Douglass Community Services.

The economic impact for our communities is enormous. Our total budget is just under 6.5 million
dollars. With approximately 140 employees and a payroll of over 2.5 million plus another million in
benefits, the Douglass Head Start/ Early Head Start Program significantly improves the economic
climate. Using a conservative multiplier of 4, which measures the number of times a dollar turns over in
a community, that translates into ten to fifteen million dollars to the economy. That doesn‟t count the
money spent on supplies and programming which is also significant.

But that‟s not the real story. As Executive Director here at Douglass, while I am glad to report on our
fiscal impact, I am even happier to remind you of the personal influence our programs have in the areas
we serve. Working through our centers and with our partners in the eight counties we cover, our staff
continues to see that our children receive the educational and social boost they need to prepare them for
school and, ultimately, life itself. As I mentioned before, our Healthy Families Program now reaches
into all of our counties, helping couples and individuals improve their marriages and relationships and
teaching young people relationship skills they need when selecting future partners. While attempts have
been made to quantify the long term effects on their lives and our society, I don‟t believe it can truly be
measured accurately. Any such attempt falls woefully short of being able to identify all of the
differences and benefits just one life can make in our world. Now multiply that by the 532 children we
serve through our program and you may begin to understand how important it is that we do not falter in
our efforts.

I hope you will continue to support us in these endeavors. Please do not


hesitate to contact us with information and ideas you feel we should
consider. I look forward to another great year and sincerely appreciate
the opportunity we have to, together, impact young lives.

Head Start Director‟s Letter to the Community:

This past year has been filled with events that have taken our program and communities along an avenue
of lows and highs. Business closings and lay-offs created a new pool of low-income families for our
communities. Recent Regional statistics show that over one in four children (26.9%) in our service area
live in a poverty household. Our Head Start program felt the effects of this in the increased number of
children applying, and qualifying, under our federal income guidelines. As a result, many on our waiting
list never received services. The number of homeless families served by Head Start also increased, with
18 families identified as homeless during 2009. Economic conditions, such as we are experiencing, also
bring about increased family stressors that present in many ways including drug and alcohol abuse and
domestic violence. These factors must be addressed in the work that we do with families.

On a more positive note, greater resources were available for Head Start programs nationwide and DCS
Head Start benefited from these resources in a variety of ways. One exciting opportunity was the
availability of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds for facility repairs and upgrades. We
were able to make some significant repairs to many centers and will be purchasing a new facility for our
New London site. We knew going into this school year that this center would not be licensed the
following year due to facility conditions. It is a blessing to know that children in Ralls County will
continue to be served in a safe and comfortable classroom environment.

ARRA funds also provided for basic classroom materials to replenish depleting supplies after years of
flat funding for Head Start program operations. In addition, improvements were made to playgrounds
and staff received the first cost of living increase over 1.5% since 2002.

The Healthy Marriage Initiative was made available to teens and adults in all eight counties in the DCS
Head Start service area in 2009. Two hundred and fifty participants completed a total of 3,504 hours of
relationship skills building sessions. These sessions helped build awareness that how they treat their
significant partner greatly affects their children‟s behaviors and influences future success in their own
relationships.

The year ended on a high note with receipt of a new grant to expand Early Head Start services into four
new areas and provide additional services in Hannibal. Seventy-two additional infants, toddlers, and
pregnant teens will be served in Bowling Green, Moberly, Louisiana, Lewistown, and Hannibal. This
still leaves four of our counties without Early Head Start services,
but we are pleased to be adding this service to three counties.

Thank you to our community partners, volunteers and donors for your
support last year. Everyone at DCS Head Start and Early Head Start
appreciate your show of support for our work in preparing children
and empowering families.

The DCS Head Start/Early Head Start Mission is to help children and families realize their full
potential.

The truth about poverty in Douglass Community Services Northeast Missouri services area
today is that over one in four children (26.9%) live in a poverty household. 93% of DCS Head
Start families served in 2009 had income below 100% federal poverty line which is $18,310
for a family of three. Research suggests that on average a family of three needs $32,180 to
meet their most basic needs (Missouri Community Action Partnership).

Head Start services were provided to 18 homeless families in 2009. DCS Head Start, Early
Head Start, and Healthy Marriage Initiative made a lasting impact in communities across eight
counties in Northeast Missouri through direct services provided to 561 children and their
families.

Economic Impact:

The DCS Head Start and Early Head Start program provides quality early childhood education
and care, free of charge, so that parents can stay in the workforce and be assured that their
children are in a safe and nurturing environment. Seventy one percent (71%) of DCS Head
Start families live on less than $15,000 a year. The average annual cost of child care for a
1-year-old in our area is $5,239 (Children‟s Defense Fund).

In addition, DCS Head Start, Early Head Start, and Healthy Families project supports a labor
force of 123 employees drawn from local communities, returning $2,153,648 into the local
economy.

School Readiness

Through comprehensive services children were prepared to compete academically, physically


and socially with their peers. Families were assisted in improving their own educational levels
and marketable job skills, as well as being prepared to support their child‟s learning throughout
their school career.

Children‟s growth is supported in academic, physical and social/emotional skills to prepare the
child to more readily succeed in school. Measurements of children‟s progress are aligned with
Missouri‟s state pre-K standards. 100% Head Start teachers have a minimum of an Associate‟s
Degree, with 44% holding Bachelors or an advanced degree.

Classrooms are inclusive and children participate in activities


at their own level.

Education Staff members are trained on working with children


with disabilities and teachers are becoming more efficient at
identifying and referring children with potential delays.

Strong partnerships with the LEA‟s allow us to better identify,


refer, evaluate and provide services for children with disabilities.

Good attendance at the Education/Disabilities Advisory Committee meetings was maintained throughout
the year.

A wider range of disabilities has been served this year, including: Emotional/Behavioral, Autism,
Health Impairment, Speech and Language, Down‟s Syndrome and Developmental Delays.

7
Licensed mental health professionals are contracted and available on a regular basis to
consult with staff and families. They include: Cathy Hales, Hannibal Regional
Center for Child Success, Evergreen Behavioral Services, Tresa Richardson and White
Oak Counseling.

Mental health providers are available to provide special help to staff for children with
atypical behaviors.

Many different appropriate practices are used in guiding children‟s behaviors and
Behavior Plans are put into place for children that need them.

Douglass Community Services Head Start/Early Head Start provided the opportunity for
parents to be trained in the UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Institute. Over 150
families were trained in October and November. Each family received a book “What to do
when your Child gets Sick”, a health care kit, and the training on how to use the book. The
training was made possible through grants from UCLA/Johnson & Johnson, Community
Foundation of the Quincy Area, Hannibal Early Bird – Kiwanis, and other donations from
local doctors and businesses. Parents at the training received prizes for correct answers and
door prizes at the end the night.

Several dentists donated toothbrushes and toothpaste to help fight against spreading the flu
viruses.

Fiscal Management: We had no findings on last year‟s annual audit and have a strong system of internal
controls. We did exceed our in-kind goals. Parents and family members volunteered 28,675 hours.

Program Governance: DCS has an active Policy Council and Board of Directors which include required
members with financial, early childhood and legal experience.

Shared Decision Making: There are two Policy Council members who also sit on the Board of Directors.
They provide parent input to the Board and bring information back to the Policy Council.

Self-Assessment: Conducted in Spring 2009, with the information gathered used in the 2010 planning and
goal-setting.

Ongoing Monitoring: Continued progress was made to provide a more direct line for monitoring and
communication. Systems continue to be refined based on ongoing monitoring results.

ERSEA: All centers were fully enrolled all year. Program attendance for the year was 89%. File reviews
found no errors in eligibility documentation and there were no findings from the annual audit.

Planning: DCS is committed to a strong planning process. Self-assessment and ongoing monitoring is linked
to the development of long and short term goals, policies and procedures and training plans.

Communication: DCS has a strong system of communications which include: group meetings, one-on-one
meetings, newsletters, email, phone calls and a variety of resources available to both staff and parents.
Increased use of technology for communication has been implemented for distance training and meetings and
as a way to share agency happenings.

Record-Keeping and Reporting: DCS uses the Child Plus tracking system to assist with the aggregation of
data and ongoing monitoring both by the center staff and by specialists. The purchase of new computers for
centers has alleviated concerns with disparate software.

Human Resources: All classes have at least one teacher with a minimum of an Associate‟s degree and
several have Bachelor‟s Degrees and beyond. All centers have at least one social service staff with a degree.
