Great Start Collaborative

A Great Start for All Children in Alpena, Montmorency, & Alcona Counties

About Us

The Great Start Collaborative (GSC) is a collection of people like you. It belongs to you and anyone who is a member of the community.

The Great Start Collaborative of Alpena, Montmorency, and Alcona counties are made up of wide variety of both community organizations and leaders from each county that have a special interest in Early Childhood Investment. We are representatives from local businesses, health care, education, higher education, non-profit, court systems, human services, and parents who are carrying out a plan to address the needs of young children within our Northeast Michigan Communities.
