Our Mission

Higher Horizons provides quality early child development and family services for low-income families to help children and families grow in meaningful ways. We support and empower children, parents, and staff as they grow to their fullest potential through education information, resources, and advocacy.

We offer consistent comprehensive services that support the core elements of Head Start. We believe that everyone has gifts and talents to offer within our diverse community. We are committed to deliver these services with pride and excellence.

It is our goal to work with families and assist children to develop socially, cognitively, physically, and emotionally while fostering a positive self-image and love for learning that will help them succeed in our program, in public school and later in life.

We are dedicated to ensuring that all children and their families have an opportunity for a significant Head Start experience through support and partnership with community and staff, while emphasizing positive child outcomes through family participation.
