Help More Children Like Liam. Support Funding for Head Start!

When Liam was just a few months old, his mom realized something wasn't right. Liam only looked to his left, slept to his left and used his left hand for most activities. Fortunately, because Liam was enrolled in Early Head Start, he received the screening and treatment he needed.

Head Start is a comprehensive early education and development program. It is evidence-based and is proven to work to ensure kids in the program are kindergarten ready. The program has life-long benefits to children and their families. It transforms kids' lives.

Tragically, millions of children living in poverty who are eligible for Head Start, miss out on vital screenings in addition to literacy and early math. Congress can change this.

Please ask your members of Congress to support funding for Head Start and Early Head Start so more kids like Liam thrive!
Subject: Increase funding for Head Start and Early Head Start in the Fiscal Year 2019 appropriations

I am writing to urge you to increase funding for Head Start and Early Head Start in Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) appropriations. Head Start serves just 31% of eligible children. And Early Head Start fares even worse – serving just 7% of eligible kids. That translates to millions of children missing out on these programs.

Head Start is a comprehensive early education and development program. It is evidence-based and is proven to work to ensure kids in the program are kindergarten ready. The program has life-long benefits to children and their families. It transforms kids' lives.

I urge you to support more funding for Head Start and Early Head Start.
