TOGETHER WE CAN!

Throughout the state of Texas, we continue to strive to create connections and build bridges to strengthen our families and communities.

The Texas Head Start Association (TXHSA) is a private, not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1985. The Association is dedicated to improving the quality of early care and education for Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS) children and their families. TXHSA serves as a clearinghouse for its grantees and affiliate groups by providing resources, technical assistance, and training that promote the delivery of quality services. With nearly 200-plus member programs, TXHSA represents more than 80,000 children. The Association’s vision is to create an influential Head Start Association driven by volunteers and provide a voice that impacts appropriate policies for young children and their families. TXHSA speaks, represents, and advocates for the Texas 0-5 early childhood community.

Every year, hundreds of professionals, parents, and community partners of the Texas Head Start programs gather in Texas for our annual training events. This event is the most significant professional development opportunity for the Texas Head Start community. Our institutes, conferences, and trainings provide an excellent platform for participants to connect with colleagues, gain valuable insights from expert speakers, and attend presentations on best practices, quality initiatives, and emerging child and family development trends. Participants can also explore our exhibits, which are filled with the latest products, resources, and services in this field.

This Conference is targeted for: Head Start Leaders and Managers including CEOs, Executive Directors, Board Members, Policy Council Members, Head Start Directors, Finance Directors, HR Directors, IT Directors, Operations Directors, Program Coordinators (Early Childhood, Health, Disabilities, Mental Health, Family Services, Transportation, Facilities), Managers, Supervisors, Teachers, Family Service Workers, and Early Childhood Partners.
