Ensuring a Great Start for Jackson's Children!

Committees


The Great Start Collaborative's mission is to assure a coordinated system of community resources and supports to assist all Jackson County families to provide a great start for their children from birth to age five.  This is no small feat and requires the expertise and active involvement of diverse groups of community members including parents, business leaders, health and human service providers, nonprofits, philanthropy, child care providers and many more.

Members are engaged through several committees focused on all aspects of early childhood including:

Each committee has a specific area of focus that supports the mission and vision of the Great Start Collaborative.  Click on the links above to learn more about each committee's work.


Great Start Needs You!

Ensuring a great start for every child in the Jackson community cannot be accomplished without the active engagement of community members including: parents, child care professionals, business leaders, elected officials, human service providers, health care professionals, nonprofits, philanthropy, and educators.
