CAMDEN-Center For Family Services (CFS), a non-profit human service organization and new provider of Head Start in Camden County and Camden City, hosted an open house for community partners, government officials, and parents of children currently enrolled in Head Start to showcase the program that provides a strong foundation for learning success.
Congressman Rob Andrews and Camden City Mayor Dana Redd joined CFS in welcoming guests to their Pine Street location, just one of the 14 sites currently being run by the Camden City-based organization. Guests visited classrooms to learn more about the services offered at Head Start. Congressman Andrews and Mayor Redd read a story to the eager Head Start students.
“We strongly believe in the ability of each child to succeed and value the parents, family members, community members, and teachers that impact a child,” says Richard Stagliano, President/CEO of CFS. “At Center For Family Services’ Head Start program we provide each child with the expertise to build a foundation to develop and follow their own best path to a successful future.”
Head Start is a program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and families. On December 1st, CFS officially became the new provider of 5 Head Start sites in Camden City and 9 Head Start sites in Camden County.
