Dollar Per Child

For just one dollar for every child in Head Start, we can ensure that the voices of Head Start children and their families are heard by Members of Congress and the President.
 

The Dollar per Child Campaign supports Head Start advocacy across the nation. The National Head Start Association (NHSA) works hard to protect and improve Head Start programs by raising awareness about the millions of children living in poverty in the U.S. Elected officials have so many issues to focus on, that unless they hear from us, it is easy for them to overlook the impact that Head Start has in the lives of young children and families, including that Head Start is an investment with dividends that pay out over the course of a child's lifetime. Federal restrictions limit what funds can support this work. Not a single dollar of federal funds is spent on advocacy work. Therefore, voluntary contributions are a critical source of our advocacy support. Help keep the window of opportunity for success open to more children by contributing to Dollar per Child. Arizona Head Start Association members served 20,839 children and pregnant women and 19,430 families last year. Help us meet our goal of $1 for every Head Start child in Arizona.
