A Community Health Message from Our CEO


June 15, 2020

Dear CPC Community,

We continue to place the health, safety, and well-being of your children, you, and our employees as our highest priority. We miss seeing everyone in person but the current situation with COVID-19 requires that we continue with remote services until further notice. We very much appreciate the creativity and dedication of our staff to maintain connections with children and families during this difficult time, as well as the valuable partnership of our food vendor Merit Foods who assisted with our emergency food project that provided more than 18,000 food boxes to families during the last few months.

In addition to dealing with the COVID-19 health emergency, we find ourselves thrust into another crisis. The death of George Floyd and surrounding events highlight the inequities and struggles that have existed for centuries and that continue to prevent so many communities from thriving. The struggle in our nation has spread to a worldwide outcry in support of lasting and meaningful change.

In our position as a Head Start provider, we have a responsibility and a role to play in this effort. The work we do is much larger than the services we provide in the classrooms, with parents, and with our partners. It is about shaping lives and preparing for the future. It is about providing a foundation for individuals and communities to reach their potential.

Head Start was created in a similar time of unrest that we are experiencing right now in our country due to the murder of George Floyd and so many others before him. The current protests are about civil rights and eliminating inequities, and that is the very same backdrop that occurred when Head Start was formed in the 1960’s. Head Start was borne out of a social and economic justice movement – intended to eradicate poverty and the achievement gap, to ensure that as many of our citizens as possible have access to opportunity.

We do not carry out our work in isolation of what is going on around us. In Head Start, we are already taking action every day to fight the inequities that are being highlighted right now. In the days and months ahead, I look forward to working together to further this work and continuing to battle the inequities that exist in our nation.

Wishing you the very best during these uncertain times. Stay well,

Erin Lyons

Chief Executive Officer
