The mission of Adams County Head Start (ACHS) is to provide high-quality early education for children in partnership with their families and the community.
This is accomplished by managing services that will provide for greater social well-being, provide a foundation for children to grow and develop basic skills for school success, improve the abilities of families to be financially self-sufficient, and promote the healthy development of children and families. ACHS's ability to accomplish these goals rests on the needs of the community it serves, the network of support agencies and services in that community, the active cooperation and participation of the families and children it serves, and the quality and dedication of its staff.
The vision of Adams County Head Start is that every child enrolled in Head Start will enter kindergarten with the competencies necessary to succeed in school and parents / caregivers will be empowered to be their child's most important teacher.
