The needs of low-income Ontario County families and children are ever-changing, and it is our job to find out what those needs are so that Head Start and the surrounding social services can better serve county families. In addition, as Head Start is a Federally Funded program, another aim of our survey is to determine where these funds are being utilized or if they would be more usefully employed in other locations. It is the hope of the research team that the surveys will yield valid and reliable answers to the question of the kinds of issues that low-income families from Ontario County and children encounter. We also hope to provide our client with useful information that will enable Head Start to better serve the Ontario County public now and in the future.
