HOPE – Families and Children Together, Inc. has rolled out billboards in Hope to remind families of children three to five years old that the application period is open for Head Start. Families and Children Together, Inc. (FACT, Inc.) is the grantee managing the Head Start programs in Hope, Blevins, Prescott, Rosston and several other towns in southwest and south central Arkansas.

FACT is bringing the application and enrollment process to the community. The first “Application Intake in the Neighborhood” will be on Thursday, March 30th, 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Hope Migrant/Community Health Center, 205 Smith Road, next to the Arkansas Workforce Center.

Parents and caregivers should bring proof of income and proof of the child’s birthdate and insurance to the intake. Staff will be available to help with the application and to answer questions.

FACT Executive Director Trena White said “Head Start is a whole family effort which means we help parents with whatever they need so they can support their students’ school readiness goals from academic development to social and emotional growth.” FACT’s only mission is to ensure the children have access to quality pre-school. Head Start has been in place more than 50 years and has helped thousand of Arkansas children, and millions across the country, be school ready.
