The Stoughton Area Resource Team, Inc. (START) provides a safety net for those in crisis. Recently, a 30-year old single father of two struggled to find work, to pay for daycare for his children and to secure a home; so much time was spent homeless and hopeless.

Stoughton Head Start Upgrades 23-24 School Year - 2023 Amount Funded: $2,000.00
The estimated timeline of implementation is to purchase the items as soon as the funding is awarded. All items would be purchased and assembled by the end of January 2024, at the very latest. A more organized and fun environment at the Stoughton Head Start will provide a very positive impact on the children and teachers at that site this school year, and for years to come.
The Stoughton Head Start Upgrades (23-24) Grant includes a few different items that the teachers have requested for their site. They would like a teeter totter, better storage solutions and tables to enhance the site. There are 17 children enrolled at any given time in the Stoughton Head Start classroom. This grant would provide permanent changes that would impact many additional children and staff for years to come. Our maintenance department could help assemble these items, so no volunteer time would be needed. The goals of these upgrades are to add a fun gross motor addition to the outdoor space and improve storage options at the relatively small site. An organized environment is necessary for the best functioning of the site. Environments matter and impact childrens learning and teacher wellness.
