Orange County Head Start Inc. to Begin Directly Operating Head Start and Early Head Start Services in the City of Orange as of July 1, 2019.

Santa Ana, CA – Orange County Head Start Inc. (OCHS) has been providing services to the county’s most vulnerable and at-risk children and their families since 1979. OCHS is funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services to provide Early Head Start (pregnant mothers and children birth-3 years in age) and Head Start (children 3-5 years) services throughout all of Orange County, CA.
The OCHS Board of Directors and Policy Council recently reviewed the results from the federally mandated community assessment and cost analysis to determine the needs of all children and families in Orange County and how to most efficiently and effectively utilize federal dollars to meet those needs in its next five-year grant cycle. Based on this review, the OCHS Board of Directors and Policy Council have determined that it will be more cost effective for OCHS to directly provide Head Start and Early Head Start services to the children and families in the service area currently covered by Orange Children and Parents Together, Inc. (OCPT), a delegate agency of OCHS.
OCHS is committed to working with Orange Children and Parents Together, Inc. (OCPT) to ensure a smooth transition of Head Start and Early Head Start services that prioritizes high quality services to children and families and the protection of federal dollars through compliance with all applicable federal and state regulations. As always, OCHS’s primary goal is to provide uninterrupted services to children and families. This includes services to children and families that are: (1) currently enrolled in Head Start or Early Head Start; (2) currently enrolled in Head Start or Early Head Start and will continue to be age eligible next school year; and (3) eligible pregnant moms, infants, toddlers and preschoolers that are not enrolled at this time but would like to enroll in the future. OCHS greatly appreciates full support throughout this process to achieve these objectives.
OCHS services are comprehensive with emphasis on promoting children’s school readiness in areas including, but not limited to: language and cognitive development, early reading, science, mathematics, social skills, health and physical
End
development. Each year, OCHS serves over 3,000 pregnant mothers, infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families across all of Orange County, including those who are homeless, in foster care, have special needs, are on public assistance, whose family incomes are at or below the federal poverty line, and/or have other high risk circumstances.
