On September 9, 2013, the Head Start of Beaver County started classes under the direction of the Private Industry Council of Westmoreland/Fayette, Inc. (PIC), as the new grantee. The program offers 18 single-session classrooms, 3 double-session classrooms, and 2 home-based areas. Together these classrooms and areas serve a total of 478 children throughout the county.
Many of the single-session classrooms are housed in public school buildings, including Aliquippa, Big Beaver Falls, Blackhawk, Central Valley, Rochester, and Southside. The other classroom sites are located in Ambridge, Beaver Falls, Community College of Beaver County, and New Brighton. Home-based services are offered in the Tusca and Riverside areas.
On October 17, 2013, Head Start of Beaver County officially moved into its administrative office located in the Beaver Valley Mall in Monaca. The move came after more than two months of working in very confined spaces within the New Brighton center, which also houses two single-session classrooms and one double-session classroom. The new office is freshly painted and new carpeting is installed. Phone and internet service was established before officially making the move.
The administrative office is the home of the Director Child Development and Education Manager, Child Health and Safety Manager; Parent, Family and Community Engagement Manager; 2 Home-Based Instructors; Data Operator; Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment, and Attendance Specialist; Family, Community and Engagement Support Aide; Health Assistant, Nutrition Specialist, Supportive Service Specialist; Building Maintenance II, and Secretary.
