Male Involvement Initiative

We reach out to fathers and significant males to inspire them to become involved in the early stages of their child’s development and life. Our activities are open to biological fathers, as well as extended family members such as grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and other positive male figures in your child’s life.

If you have any questions about our program or would like to get involved,  please call 314.427.4940 and speak to our Male Involvement Specialist.

Financial Literacy

Financial education is the key to being able to meet your needs and lead a more enriching lifestyle.  People who learn to build assets are more economically secure and are in a better position to support and nurture their children.  Head Start is committed to helping you learn the financial skills to better support your family and secure your future.  Ask your Head Start Family Advocate for available opportunities.
