Dr. Sharon Chamard, Justice faculty, was recently awarded a grant by Kids' Corps, an Anchorage-based Head Start agency. Dr. Chamard will assist with a community assessment by collecting demographic data on Anchorage in general, and on children and families eligible for participation in Head Start.

A community assessment is conducted every three years and includes community demographics and descriptions of the clients directly served.
