What We Do
Klamath Family Head Start (KFHS) was established in 1980, and currently serves over 400 children and their families in Klamath and Lake counties each year. We provide a safe, creative and healthy learning atmosphere, and support social-emotional learning and skill development. Because we believe success begins at home, we also offer additional support (including parenting classes and educational opportunities) for program parents and families.
We offer vision, speech, mental health, nutrition, and social service screenings, and promote the importance of dental and medical exams for our students – we aim to facilitate a lifetime of health and learning with the families we serve, while meeting our community’s needs and celebrating its unique ethnic and cultural characteristics.
We receive our program funding through the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Head Start, and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE).
