Head Start Heroes


Worcester Community Action Council, Inc. held a celebration April 13th at St. Joseph’s Parish Center in Auburn, to acknowledge and thank several key individuals and organizations who assisted the agency with relocating 81 children from a Head Start site in Oxford following an emergency evacuation and subsequent closure due to a severely leaking roof in February. Dubbed Head Start Heroes, WCAC presented certificates of appreciation and potted plants – featuring handprints of Head Start students – to individuals who played a critical role in the eventual relocation of the displaced students to three alternative sites – the Guild of St. Agnes Daycare in Webster, St. Joseph’s Parish Center in Auburn, and expanded classrooms at WCAC’s existing site at Cole Avenue in Southbridge.
