Head Start Agencies Getting Stimulated

A number of Head Start programs in the suburbs of Boulder and the Denver, Colo., will be receiving almost $700,000 from federal stimulus funds. The money will help the agencies with cost-of-living increases and also improve the overall quality of the programs, including (possibly) transportation.

C.A.N.D.Y. for All the Kids

The Mississippi Press reported on a program that is visiting schools (including Head Start agencies) in the southeast part of the state that is teaching kids safety on numerous levels. Citizens Against Needless Death in Youth (C.A.N.D.Y.) representatives have been giving presentations each month on seat belt safety, handling bullies and water safety.

C.A.N.D.Y. is a program funded through a local chapter of the United Way.
