Our Team

Our Klamath Family Head Start team works daily to guide, educate, advocate for, and serve our program students and their families. We work with parents, community partners, and local agencies to support our students’ paths to lifelong health and learning. We love our community, and find joy in seeing our program families thrive in Head Start and beyond!

Cindy Walsh, Executive Director

A Klamath Falls native, Cindy has served Klamath Family Head Start for over 20 years. After graduating from Southern Oregon University — and completing her school practicum with Klamath Family Head Start during her time in Ashland — Cindy returned home to work with the program full time.

Cindy joined the team as an aid and teacher, before shifting into management with the organization in 2002. Her background with the organization gives her first-hand knowledge and insight to guide the continued growth of Klamath Family Head Start for years to come.

A Word From Cindy:

“Having fallen in love with Head Start years ago, I can’t imagine Klamath Family Head Start not being a part of our community. We have wonderful support, and have been able to blossom as an organization. For those families who enroll in Early Head Start, we get to be involved with their children’s lives from the very beginning. This means students can stay with us for years. It’s an amazing reward, watching families change and watching our staff work with our families.”
