New St Paul Head Start Agency

New St. Paul Head Start Agency, Inc. (NSPHS), is a non-profit organization located within the city of detroit. NSPHS was founded in 1994 in response to the growing number of young children in need of services in the proposed service area. NSPHS has been dedicated to uplifting the lives of its children and their families by providing high-quality, comprehensive early childhood and family engagement services. In 1994, NSPHS began as a head start subrecipient (delegate agency) of the city of detroit; in 2014, new st. Paul was funded as a birth-to-five head start/early head start grantee. As a grantee, NSPHS objective is to service the greater detroit community, particularly to the communities of highest need by serving 770 infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and pregnant women.
