Support for Parents

Parent Coalition

A network of parents who participate in Great Start Collaborative - Oakland initiatives and support parents in Oakland County.

Support for Parents

As a single mom of two young boys it was so very important to me to not only be involved in my children's day to day life, but also with the community that supports us. After attending my first parent connection meeting I knew it would only benefit the boys and I to continue going. I have built relationships with other parents, and began making connections with professionals who I now work alongside to create something that truly benefits the children of our community. I always leave our meetings having learned something new, as well as feeling inspired.
