Take a moment to look around your community today. It is very likely that you will run into some of the millions of Americans who began their success at a Head Start child development center just like Orange Children & Parents Together. Head Start graduates are our mayors, teachers, police officers, librarians, congresspeople, nurses, attorneys, doctors, authors, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the nonprofit community. Since 1967 OCPT has served over 95,000 individuals, some of whom continued their education beyond high school, into college, and graduate programs. So this year as we collectively celebrate 50 years of high-quality early childhood education, we are also celebrating the strength and success of citizens all around us who achieved the American Dream and in turn fortify the economic and social fabric of the United States.
