Hello, welcome to Elkhart. My name is Becky Hoag. I am the Family Services Worker/Advocate for the Head Start program which is a part of the Elkhart Elementary Campus. I have been with the Head Start program since it’s opening in September, 1992 as a parent. I started my career with Head Start in August 1993 as the lead teacher in the classroom with an agency that has since been eliminated. Since August, 1998 the program has become a part of the local school district. My role changed to the Family Services Worker/Advocate with Region 7 Head Start. Head Start is a Federal Funded Program which serves qualifying families. It is a comprehensive services program which meets the child and family needs. Head Start promotes healthy, happy and successful children and their families. The hope of Head Start is to make a positive impact on the lives of the families and children which we serve. Let me know how I may assist your family with your needs.
