Head Start Community Partnerships

Operation School Bell gives Head Start children free bikes


HCDE Head Start partners with organizations and companies throughout the Houston area to provide assistance to our students and their families. Our community partners have donated facility use, cars, uniforms, books, resources and most of all, their time to help support our families and prepare children for success in school.
