The Region IV Head Start Association, Inc. (RIVHSA), founded in 1986, is a private, not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to improving the quality of early care and education for Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS) children and their families.
It is our mission to support the Head Start community through leadership, advocacy, partnership and professional development in order to promote the delivery of high-quality services to children and families.
