Parent Coalition
Come discover just how influential you can be in your county. The Great Start Parent Coalition (GSPC) is a place where you can voice your opinions, learn new things and connect with other parents.

The Parent Coalition is open to all parents in the Van Buren County. We work to help educate, inform and recruit parents in our community to become involved in making our county a great place for young families to live and grow.

During our monthly meetings, parents share information and participate in decision-making processes to improve early childhood services. Ultimately, we're all working together to provide a GREAT START for all children.

If you would like to receive Great Start Parent Coalition updates via e-mail or join the coalition, please complete this form.

Check out our photo gallery to see the great events we experience with your children.
