Abstract: The Head Start program provides services to children and their families living in poverty which results in placing many referrals as well as provides/suggests resources to help the families in the program who need additional help. Countless families in the program have not followed up on referrals or accessed the resources and services that have been suggested to them, which adds the question, what are their barriers as to why they choose not to accept the help that is being offered.
