Your donation helps support Howard County’s youngest minds.

CAC provides year-round Head Start and pre-K programming to income-eligible families who reside in Howard County. It’s well-documented that children living in poverty are more likely to experience or develop mental, emotional, behavioral health challenges. Head Start was created to mitigate those challenges. Our goal is for children from low-income families to walk into their classrooms on the first day of kindergarten as well-positioned to succeed as classmates who grew up in wealthier households. Yearly we serve 362 children and their families through this program!
