Shirley Ferguson

Assistant Director

I have been employed at Alta Care Group since 2001 and have been involved in many aspects of the agency’s progressive early childhood initiatives.  I am a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) and hold specialized certifications in early child mental health and chemical dependency.  I had the opportunity to transition the agencies newly acquired Head Start program in July of 2015 as the Assistant Director.  In this capacity, I support the Program Director in the day to day operations of the Head Start program. One of my main focuses is quality assurance and monitoring the program to ensure goals and outcomes are being met and that we are providing the best services possible to our children and families.  I am proud to be a former Head Start child, and I am committed to doing all I can to personally and professionally ensure that the children in our community receive a solid foundation in being socially, emotionally and academically ready for their future.
