The Ingham Great Start Collaborative

About the Ingham Great Start Collaborative

DSC_0851We are a coalition of human service agencies, families and other partners working together to ensure every child from birth to eight in Ingham County has access to a universal, comprehensive and collaborative system of community-based early childhood programs, services and supports.

The Ingham GSC is part of the Michigan Great Start partnership with the Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC) and the Michigan Office of Great Start.
