Northport Head Start has the good fortune of having several student volunteers. Kalie, a UW-Madison student, highlighted Northport Head Start as the feature in a documentary she created for a class project. We are proud of the work Kalie has done to highlight the benefits of Head Start. Please take a moment to view her final production:

Video: Hanging in the Balance: A Head Start for Low-Income Kids
This video spotlights what’s at stake if Congress fails to act to avert the automatic cuts to the area of the budget that funds many human needs programs, including Head Start. As many as 80,000 children could lose access to Head Start’s comprehensive services and more than 30,000 teachers, administrators, and support staff could lose their jobs. At a time when one in four children under age 5 are living in poverty, we need a strong Head Start program now more than ever.
