what our clients are saying
“I have learned to listen a lot more to my child when she’s crying or throwing a tantrum. The Head Start staff helps you figure out what is going to work for you and your family.”
“I am able to take care of my son and to have another chance to do things right. That’s all we ever need and this program has given me a chance to change my life.”
“I didn’t consider myself one of those people who really needed the moral support but there are some things you go through in life that you do really need somebody to talk to. [AFLP] helped me through a chapter that was really rough.
“WIC has helped my family put food on the table. I think WIC has honestly helped me throughout the shelter-in-place orders because having WIC gives me that reinforcement, knowing that I have resources there to help me.”
