MARK UPSHAW - POLICY COUNCIL PARENT
My name is Mark L. Upshaw, and I'm a member of CFCS' Policy Council, one of the governing bodies for our agency. I am 34 years old and am currently working with at-risk youth as a Case Manager and Teen Mentor. I would love to see these at-risk youth not become involved in the streets. Hopefully, I can aid and direct them towards a successful future.
My reason for being involved with the Head Start program is not only because of my child's enrollment and the fact I love kids. I also believe that we can begin to build a better future for our children by being a part of their lives early on. By doing so, we can begin to build a better future for them by believing in them and by showing them they can build a better future for themselves.
U.S. CONGRESSMAN SWALWELL
VISITS HEAD START!
U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell took time out of his busy schedule to visit the children and staff of CFCS' Head Start/Early Head Start at Peixoto school in Hayward on March 31st. This site serves 169 Hayward children with six pre-school and four infant/toddler classrooms. CFCS partners with the Alameda County Office of Education to provide services to children from birth to three years with special needs and with Hayward Unified School District to provide full inclusion classrooms
Congressman Swalwell played with the Southern Alameda County infants and toddlers whose needs are well served by our agency. CFCS is entering our 50th year of service as a non-profit providing education and family support services to qualified low income families and children with special needs.
CFCS thanks and applauds Congressman Swalwell for his continued support of Head Start/Early Head Start!
