Community Action (www.communityactionatwork.org) continues to raise funds to complete facility renovations that will create a Home for Head Start at 1843 K Street. Of the $4.5 million Home for Head Start campaign goal, over 60% has so far been raised for the two-phase renovation of the facility formerly used as a post-secondary education institution. The project will transform the space located at the intersection of K Street and Antelope Valley Parkway in Lincoln from one used for adult education to one for early childhood education. At Community Action’s K Street center, 197 children and their families participate in Head Start programming.
Community Action has been providing early childhood education services through Head Start since the 1960s and serves 493 children and families across its service area. Renovations will include building new classrooms with easily accessible restrooms and handwashing sinks, indoor and outdoor play areas and spaces for support services offered to Head Start participants and other neighbors.
Community Action completed the first phase of improvements on the lower east portion of the facility in April 2022. The second phase of improvements on the west and upper east portions of the facility are set to begin in the first half of 2023.
