South Coast Head Start has proudly served children and families in southwestern Oregon for over 35 years. Head Start is founded on the principle that parents are the primary teachers of their children. We are committed to providing comprehensive child and family development services as children and families prepare for successful futures. Head Start offers child development, family, health, nutrition, disabilties and mental health services at no charge to enrolled families.
South Coast Head Start offers a wide range of service options to children ages birth through five and pregnant mothers. The Head Start program offers half day preschool classrooms, home visiting and family engagement opportunties throughout Coos and Curry Counties.

Thank You, Coquille Tribal Council!
On behalf of the ORCCA Board, staff, and families served, thank you to the Coquille Tribal Community Fund Board of Trustees for your generous grants totaling $19,000 to the following ORCCA programs: South Coast Food Share, CASA of Coos County, and Share Bear Snack Pack.
In 2001, the Coquille Tribal Council established the Coquille Tribal Community Fund in order to share profits from its business ventures, particularly The Mill Casino Hotel, with the surrounding community. The Fund gives the Tribe a means to target its charitable efforts toward projects that will make a clear difference for daily life in the Bay Area and the southwest Oregon region.
We appreciate your continued support of families served by ORCCA programs!
COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: QUILTERS
Thank you, SOUTH COAST HOSPICE (CB), COOS SAND 'N SEA QUILT GUILD (NB), COAST QUILTERS of United Presbyterian Church (Reedsport), and FAITH LUTHERAN CHURCH (NB), for honoring our veterans with handmade quilts.
Your time, talent, expense, and love put into each quilt is appreciated.
"What is a veteran? A veteran - whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount up to, and including, their life."
Thank you, quilters, for your generosity!! Thank you, veterans, for your service!!
Cecilia Lyons Gonzalez
It is with a heavy heart that we share news of the recent passing of a friend and colleague, Cecilia Lyons Gonzalez.
Cecilia worked for Oregon Housing and Community Services since May 1999 and in state government since March 1997.
Of her 17 years of state experience, her most recent work was managing the state and federal food programs. Cecilia’s service and contributions to OHCS, the state and the Oregon Food Bank community will be greatly missed.
