“We’re delighted to be opening this new location,” Mindy Zapata, the director of Early Head Start and Head Start at Southwest Human Development, said in a press release.
“We’re really seeing how fundamental these programs have been for underserved families throughout our community to receive the support they need.”
The new campus will serve 34 income-eligible children and their families.
