Kids Reading Margaret H. Cone Head Start Center
With the help of our funding and involvement, the Margaret H. Cone Model Head Start Center is beginning to paint a brighter future for the children in one of Dallas' poorest neighborhoods. Since 1990, the Foundation has collaborated with universities and local Head Start administrators to develop a model preschool program at the Cone Center -- one which gives about 90 economically disadvantaged students with the services they need to succeed in school and beyond, such as quality nutrition, health care, social services and education, including a rich multi-sensory language curriculum.
