HeadStart moves its central headquarters to La Maestra’s campus on Fairmount Avenue. WIC also establishes a site on the campus. Ties developed with Neighborhood House, MAAC, Copley YMCA, and others result in furthering La Maestra’s Preschool program, Child and Family Literacy programs, and easing refugee and immigrant children and their families into the elementary school phase in the United States. This provides a one-stop shop service delivery system to the community and brings like-minded organizations together, greatly enhancing their respective and collective organizational missions. Alexei Ochola from MAAC joins the LMFC Board of Directors in 1996.
