Central Texas 4C, Inc. is a non-profit agency which has served Central Texans for over 40 years. Most people call us simply "4C" which stands for Community Choices in Children's Care. 4C operates sixteen Head Start centers which annually serve over 700 children ages 0-5 in the cities of Temple, Belton, Killeen, Harker Heights, Troy, Holland and Copperas Cove, Texas. (Check the LOCATIONS tab for each center's ages served. Some serve only 0-3, some serve 3-5 and some serve 0-5.) Fort Hood, the largest military base in the world, is adjacent to our cities. Some of our Pre-K centers are in collaboration with our ISD partners and some of our 0-3 centers are housed in the public schools to serve student parents who are working hard to graduate from school.
If the Federal Government shuts down again in the near future, that will not affect our Head Start centers. Even though we are funded with Federal grants, 4C is in a position to keep operating. We expect any shut down to be short, and 4C will be able to sustain services--even without the Feds--for an extended period. All of our centers will remain open as usual.
