Historical Note

An Office of Human Resources was established in 1971 in the Executive Department to develop, implement, and manage social services for low-income and disadvantaged residents of Seattle. In 1973 it was replaced by the Department of Human Resources. DHR administered family and youth services programs, senior citizen services, community service activities, the Seattle Veterans Action Center, and the Comprehensive Residential Weatherization Program. Federal, state, and local grants comprised two-thirds of the department's operating budget. Passage of the 1986 Low Income Housing Levy increased the City's funding and policy role in housing issues. In 1991, the agency name was changed to the Department of Human Services. A year later, the Department of Housing and Human Services was created, incorporating the City housing programs and Community Development Block Grant administration from the recently abolished Department of Community Development. DHHS programs included aging services, family and youth services, housing and community services, human services, and the City's education office. In 1999, the Office of Housing was established as an independent agency and DHHS was reorganized as the Human Services Department.

Content Description

Records of a child development program for preschool children from low-income families. Funded with money from federal, state and local governments, the program offered comprehensive services, including education, health, nutrition, and social services, through contract agencies at sites throughout Seattle. Begun as the Head Start Program, the name changed to Head Start/Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program in 1987 to reflect State ECEAP funding. Records include subject files, monitoring reports, photographs, parent policy committees, and records of the Head Start/ECEAP Policy Council.
