The COVID-19 public health crisis is affecting every community across the country and Head Start families and staff are confronting unprecedented challenges with creativity, bravery, and compassion. NHSA wants to hear about it all directly from the field – the challenges you are facing and how Head Start is partnering with families in new ways to support children.

NHSA will share your responses on our social media platforms to help unite the Head Start community through your stories, which is critical during this time of physical separation. Understanding the realities in your programs right now also helps NHSA's government affairs team advocate before Washington's decision makers to ensure Head Start receives the funds and resources to meet current needs. The stories that you share will support our efforts to share effective practices in the field during this unprecedented time.

We are grateful for your frontline leadership during these challenging times. It is our hope that together we can share stories to inspire and help others facing similar challenges. If we can be of any assistance, please contact us at

Thank you for your participation! Please share this link with Head Start families and staff in your community.
