A program that helps hundreds of low-income kids every year is being slashed because of federal budget cuts.

The summer program for Rockford's head start is being eliminated. The free class helps kids get ready for kindergarten.

Job training, housing and social service needs as well as the regular pre-school program will still go on, but the number of slots for those programs will be decreased.
