Opportunities head start provides comprehensive child development and social services to low-income families with young children from pre- natal up to five years of age. In 2019, the program served over 900 low- income infants, preschoolers, and toddlers from the community. With respect to its head start 0-5 program, innovative partnerships have been established with local school districts to provide isd teachers in the classroom, services to children with disabilities, facility and land space, and transportation services. Head start also has significantly benefited from donated utilities, land, and buildings from cities, counties and civic groups, and grant-making organizations such as the greater round rock community foundation. Additionally, countless volunteer hours and donated supplies have been contributed by numerous community members and local businesses.
Opportunities affordable housing provides housing at below market rent to qualifying low/moderate income families.
