How to Achieve Your Goals
As part of the Family Partnership Agreement with the Head Start Program, families are encouraged to write goals based on identified strengths and needs for their family. Our hope is that, as a parent, you DREAM BIG and go for goals that seem bigger than you. We are here to help you with your plan. Knowing where you want to go (your goal) is the first step in planning the journey. When you get stuck on a step along the way, we can help you find the right resources to point you in the right direction. Think of your Family Advocate as a gas station attendant that knows directions to many different places, because people get lost and stop to ask for help.
Attached you will find a Goal Planning Guided (PDF) that your advocate has to help you write goals and plan your journey. This is a short guide of ideas that may help stir the desire to reach your goals. Do you need or want to continue your education? Do you need to find a job or a new one? Do you want to own a home or live in a safer place? Do you need to work on your finances and get your family on a budget? What is your DREAM; that is your GOAL! It is time to get Around To It!
