Head Start in 2021: Starting with Equity 


We have learned so many things in the past year and a half about ourselves, our programs, our workforce, and our families. Most of all, we have learned that all our work must begin with a foundation of equity. Join MHSA and our fantastic speakers for two weeks of interesting sessions to help guide your program into this "new normal" in 2021.
