Board Member Q&A: As a parent, Kamilar Moore knows what she’s fighting for 

New Board Member Kamilar Moore is a certified nursing assistant with over 20 years of experience, as well as the parent of two children who graduated from Head Start early learning services.

We’ve received additional grants for Head Start/Early Head Start, expanding total seats in the Chicago and Suburban Cook County to 1,900

As a result of these new awards, Easterseals will serve a total of approximately 1,900 children and families in suburban Cook County and Chicago, an increase of 27 percent.
