After a visit to Mi Segunda Casa Head Start, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock spoke with Larry Smith, the president and CEO of Catholic Charities, about continuing a partnership of service.
“Catholic Charities has perennially been a partner in the city, throughout the region, quite frankly, in helping us to develop smarter, healthier young people,” said Hancock on Jan. 8. “And what you do – you’re a valuable partner in the City of Denver – with regards to childcare, pre-school and Early Head Start. So, you’re a valuable stakeholder…”
Mi Segunda Casa Head Start, located at 430 W. 9th Ave., serves children ages three to five years old.
“We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with the city,” Smith said to Hancock. “Not just with our early childhood development, but with help to the homeless at our Samaritan House, and a lot of the other programs that we feel a strong partnership with the city, so thank you very much.”
“Please keep up the good work,” said Hancock. “Thanks for being our partner.”
