Welcome

UMCHS is an agency committed to ensuring that children, and those who care for them, are given all the tools they need to create healthy and happy futures for the next generation. The agency is founded on the principles that have made Head Start one of the earliest and most effective interventions for preparing our young children for brighter futures academically, socially and emotionally.
