Great Start Collaborative

Kids Great Start Collaborative and Parent Coalition

Our Multi-County Great Start Collaborative (GSC) is a partnership of local leaders and parents working toward a comprehensive early childhood system aligned to address all factors that influence a child’s readiness for school and life.


COOR/Iosco Great Start Collaborative Mission: 

The mission of the Multi-County Collaborative is to engage the entire community to assure a coordinated system of services and resources to assist families in providing a great start for their children from prenatal through age eight.

COOR/Iosco Great Start Collaborative Vision:

All children in Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw, Roscommon, Iosco counties will begin kindergarten safe, healthy, and ready to succeed in school and in life.
