Testimonials & Success Stories

Head Start of Greater Dallas serves me and my family, as well as teaching my kids the skills they need to exceed in life. I love everyone in the building, as soon as I arrive in the building they greet me and treat me well. It’s just a blessing to be here. I work a full-time job, my wife works a full-time job and my daughter is loving it here. I also have a nephew who attended Head Start, too. He is currently ahead of his class and has mastered a lot of skills. The staff here means everything to me, they treat me like family

Head Start Dad

My daughter has been here for two years and they help me with counseling and all the way around. My daughter’s opened up out of her shell, she’s been doing excellent ever since she’s been here since I work full-time and it’s been a lot of help. I know she’s somewhere safe and that she’s going to be okay
