Head Start and...Your Child...Your Family...Your Community.
Studies have shown that children in need often start school without the skills and confidence to keep up with their classmates. They fall behind and as the years pass their troubles are compounded, they do poorly or drop out of school entirely. EightCAP's goal is to close the gap, ensuring that children begin school as confident, healthy, and prepared students, increasing their chances of academic success.
We the working body of Community Services see our role as threefold in nature; as advocate for the poor, including the individual and the collective; as teacher to a community that must concern itself with the scope, causes, and problems of poverty; and as a person of empowerment that leads, guides, and supports the poor in their struggle to be fully self sufficient. Each of our actions, efforts, and programs are directed to that end.
