Summer Session Is Underway
The summer session for our Head Start and Early Head Start Programs at Community Action Agency of Siouxland are underway at some of our centers. We are so excited to have more than 100 children back in our programs to help them continue to grow and learn.
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have made changes to the way children enter the building. Each child has their temperature checked and parents are asked a series of questions. We cannot thank our staff and families enough for being patient during this time so we can keep everyone safe.
Registration is underway for our 2020-2021 Head Start and Early Head Start Programs. To learn more, call us at 712-274-1610 or you can visit the website at www.caasiouxland.org
Helping Families In Need
So many of our families have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though our doors are currently closed to the public, we continue to help individuals and families with food, helping them pay portions of their rent, utility, mortgage payments, along with helping them with other services or needs they may have. Since our closure, on March 17, our Outreach staff has helped more than 3,000 individuals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of our clients was laid off and was not eligible for unemployment. With no income, Sarah was struggling to pay all of her bills and had a disconnection notice on her utilities for the very next day. After speaking with our staff, we were able to help her keep the lights on in her home. "I am so thankful to Community Action Agency," Sarah said. "I was down on my luck and they have helped me get back on my feet so I can continue to provide for my family." Sarah's story is just one of many that we have heard during this pandemic.
