Great Start Collaborative & Parent Coalition
Every county in Michigan has a Great Start Collaborative consisting of parents, educators and service providers, who meet regularly and work together to ensure families have the resources they need so their young children are healthy, safe, happy, and prepared to succeed in school. They seek input from parents about what their needs are so they can make changes to the services they provide and create new programs to better meet families' needs.
