This week, CEOGC welcomed Executive Director of the National Head Start Association, Yasmina Vinci, to Cleveland to celebrate the success of the Community Action Agency and its Head Start Program.

During her visit, Vinci visited CEOGC’s main office location at 1801 Superior Ave. in Cleveland. She spoke with CEOGC’s president and CEO Dr. Jacklyn Chisholm, members from CEOGC’s Board of Directors, members of the leadership team and many of CEOGC’s key community partners.

Vinci thanked the staff at CEOGC for their dedication to the children and families served in Cuyahoga County. She congratulated Dr. Chisholm on the agency’s turnaround, and said she looked forward to seeing what was next from the agency and its staff.

Over the past year and a half, Dr. Chisholm and her staff have shared the agency’s success story at regional and national meetings of the National Head Start Association.

CEOGC operates 13 Head Start centers, which today are nearly all operating with five-star ratings as certified by the State of Ohio’s Step Up to Quality program.
