We believe “a seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible.”

We improve the lives of the most vulnerable children in our community and their families by providing the tools and resources to succeed. The sole Head Start provider in Marion and Hamilton counties, FDS serves more than 2,500 children and infants each year from 10 centers in Indianapolis and Noblesville.

Our loving teachers, staff and volunteers provide a safe and nourishing environment for children — we feed their mind with curriculum-based education, their body with healthy food, and their spirit with love and attention.
