President Kennedy said, “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.” If we all know this to be true, then why are 16 million children living in extreme poverty in the United States? Why would we allow our nation’s most prized resource, children and babies, to be overlooked and under-served? Orange Children & Parents Together has not overlooked these children and families. OCPT, along with other wonderful Head Start organizations throughout the country, invest in over one million children a year! This month marks the 50th year that Head Start has educated the youngest Americans, invested in their families, and therefore strengthened our national economy, society, and collective future. The history of Head Start’s birth and grow spans five decades and nine presidential administrations. The fruits of Head Start’s legacy are celebrated all around us today. The 32 million children educated through Head Start over the past fifty years, have become teachers, lawyers, police and fire fighters, mayors, and more! Visit the Head Start time line here to celebrate the significant milestones in our shared history. Join this American legacy by supporting the high quality early education programs at Orange Children & Parents Together.
