Nearly 50 years ago, the U.S. declared a war on poverty with the creation of Head Start

Nearly 50 years ago, the U.S. declared a war on poverty with the creation of Head Start and other programs for low-income families. Now the Coalition on Human Needs is harvesting stories of those who have been helped by anti-poverty services or have helped others or have seen the benefits of such programs in their communities. The “Our American Story” program partners with the Community Action Partnership over the next few months to put these real-life stories to use. 11/13/2013
