HCAP featured on KHON-2 for Head Start 50th Anniversary Family Fair


HCAP was featured in KHON-2 for Head Start‘s 50th Anniversary Family Fair, held at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena on May 19, 2015. The article quotes:

“(They’re) basically all education-based activities, physical activities,” said Kawehilani Unga of HCAP. “We have parents who volunteered to do a music group, dance group and then of course the kids have been performing all day, their May Day performance, to showcase what they’ve learned over the years.”

The Head Start program has been providing health, education and family services to low-income families since 1965.

“We are still as important today as we were 50 years ago and we’re so proud of the families who participate in our program and we are so grateful for the children who participate,” said HCAP executive director Robert Piper. “In the future, I think we’re going to continue to do our best to fight poverty and to help others who are less fortunate to achieve their own goals in life.”
