Male Involvement Initiative

We reach out to fathers to inspire them to become more involved in the early stages of their child’s development and life.  The program is open to the biological parent, as well as extended family members such as grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and other positive male figures.

If you know of other organizations that promote active fatherhood, Head Start can provide training and technical assistance.  Call 314.427.4940 and ask for the 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 Center for available courses.
