Community Action Looking For Head Start Applicants

Even though the latest school year just wrapped up, Community Action of central Illinois is looking for income-eligible families to start the process to get their kids enrolled in Head Start.


Alison Rumler-Gomez, Executive Director of Community Action, explains July 1 they have their May selections made, they are in the midst of their June selections and there's still time to be a part of the program as they do another selection process in July.



In recent years, Community Action has struggled to keep their program full as area school districts have been able to expand their availability in their own pre-k programs. Rumler-Gomez explains they have adjusted their own programming to make them more available to the community.



You can fill out an application at capcil.info or call their Lincoln corporate office at 217-732-2159 and an application can be mailed to you. And Rumler-Gomez stresses it is important to get those applications in as soon as possible.
