Matrix Head Start is a federally funded, comprehensive program serving low-income children ages zero to five as well as special needs children and their families.  As a trilingual, multicultural program, MHS is sensitive to the cultural differences, strengths and uniqueness of our community and teaches in three languages English, Spanish and Arabic. The multifaceted program approach includes training opportunities, shared facilities, extensive community partnerships and engagements that establish Matrix as an authority in early childhood education and childcare.

“The most important lifelong gift we can give to our children is to provide the support their parents need to move out of poverty.  What differentiates Matrix Head Start and all Matrix programs is our Transition to Success™ platform designed to coordinate all services across our community to improve health and economic self-sufficiency outcomes for children and their families,” said Dr. Marcella Wilson, President and CEO of Matrix Human Services.

The  “Transition to Success™” program coordinates care for basic needs, literacy, getting an education (including GED and higher education for parents), financial literacy and volunteerism and all key components for self-sufficiency for individuals and families living in poverty. Matrix Head Start recently received a $125 Million grant from the Federal Government over the next five years to support this innovative program that includes individualized instruction, multicultural environment, bilingual classrooms (English, Spanish and Arabic), services to children with special needs and events that connect families to resources including food, education and health services throughout the community. Matrix Head Start serves more than 1,900 children and families and is expanding to offer services at 30 locations by 2015 year-round .

“We provide children with shelter, nutrition, education and a support system that branches out to their parents and caretakers.  Children and parents discover purpose by mapping their dreams and creating, with the help of trained professionals, a realistic plan to make those dreams come true,” Wilson continues.
