The mission of Utah Community Action is to empower individuals, strengthen families and build communities through self-sufficiency and education programs.
Utah Community Action is a multi-faceted agency that helps low-income individuals and families overcome barriers to self-sufficiency. Utah Community Action helps remove these barriers through six core programs.
Head Start is a comprehensive early childhood development program serving low-income children from age three to five and their families. Head Start is a Federal program that is operated by local non-profit organizations such as Utah Community Action. Children who attend Head Start participate in a variety of educational activities including literacy, language, science, social-emotional, and much more. They also receive medical and dental services, have healthy meals and snacks, and enjoy playing safely indoors and outdoors.
In addition to the educational services provided by Head Start, family involvement is at the core of its success. Head Start families can take part in the classroom as a volunteer, help with classroom projects, and even help develop curriculum. Elected family members take part in our Policy Council, a board that partners with staff members in decision-making responsibilities for the program. Families can participate in trainings in areas such as child rearing, job training, health and nutrition, as well as learn about other resources in our community.
