What is Head Start?

Douglas County Head Start is a comprehensive pre-school program serving low-income families. Children receive education services to increase their school readiness. Parents are assisted in overcoming barriers to self-sufficiency. Head Start works with the entire family and offers all family members opportunities to develop to their full potential. We provide a positive, respectful environment for growth and awareness for both parents and children.

Josephine County residents may find information about Head Start at www.socfc.org or by calling (541)734-5150.

What does Head Start cost?

Head Start costs nothing. All of our services are provided free of charge to eligible families.

Head Start serves 3 and 4-year-old children from families who are low-income or receive public assistance or have special needs such as a mental, physical, or learning disability. For complete information on eligibility requirements call (541)673-6306.
