Director Deborah Bergeron visits Mariposa and Child Development Center centers

 

Denver, CO—The national Head Start director visited two early childhood education centers in Denver operated by Catholic Charities of Denver in a nod to its work providing high-quality education to low-income families.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’  Office of Head Start Director Deborah Bergeron toured on August 30 the Mariposa, 1240 W. 10thAve., and Child Development Center, 1155 Decatur St., locations in Denver. She met the staff and visited classrooms at two of the six Early Childhood Education centers that serve 517 children throughout the program year.

“We are honored and grateful for Dr. Deborah Bergeron’s visit to our exceptional early childhood education centers,” said Alison Keough, director of Early Childhood Education. “We work hard to provide high-quality education and supportive services for the children of families we serve, many of whom are in foster care or experiencing homelessness. Dr. Bergeron’s visit is a recognition to the great work our staff does to serve the neediest of the needy families in our community.”

Catholic Charities operates six facilities in the City and County of Denver that provide Early Head Start, Head Start and child care services for prenatal to children 5 years of age. The centers provide comprehensive services to the children and families we serve. About 24 percent of the children in the program are experiencing homelessness and 186,668 meals are served to low-income children.
