GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The Head Start program in Grand Junction helps children get ready for kindergarten by promoting school readiness in a variety of areas including language development.

At Wednesday's city council meeting, the program got some help from the city. The council officially awarded them $28,000 in grant funding.

The money was allocated from the city's 2013 budget, and will go towards security upgrades to three of the buildings used by Head Start.

Along with helping students, the program also helps parents identify their own strengths while developing a stronger relationship with their kids and the Head Start staff.
