Head Start on Housing

June 17, 2022
Dear Neighbor,

I am pleased to announce Head Start on Housing, a cross-agency collaboration that will work to expedite housing subsidies for Head Start households.

Housing is the most important foundation for a healthy and stable life, especially for children who are the most vulnerable segment of the population.

Services can often be delivered in the most efficient manner when agencies work together and this effort uses a multi-pronged approach to help provide permanent housing to as many families with children as possible.

Head Start on Housing is a partnership between the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood, Connecticut Department of Housing, Connecticut Head Start State Collaboration Office, Connecticut Head Start Association, and the National Center for Housing and Child Welfare.

Combating homelessness is another component and step forward in our overall goal of improving the lives of our young residents to give them the best opportunity for future success.

I look forward to this plan benefiting children in need and to the positive impact it will have on families and neighborhoods across the state.
