Family Coalition

WHAT IS THE SANILAC GREAT START family coalition?

What’s In It For You?
Families who choose to attend meetings, share their vision, and give their time are eligible to receive a stipend and entered into quarterly drawing. Childcare is often provided, making it easier for families to attend. By participating in the early childhood system, families also have opportunities to establish connections with other parents of young children throughout Sanilac County. Families can voice their thoughts and expand their knowledge of family-friendly activities available in the community.

WHAT WE DO
The Family Coalition is a group of parents and caregivers who strive to make Sanilac County a better place to raise a family. We do this by lending our voices to the Great Start Collaborative, serving on committees, and working on projects on our own.

We aim to make Sanilac County a better place to raise a family.

  • Be the voice of Sanilac families in the local early childhood community and to those who shape the policies.
  • Launch local projects like the Preschool Scholarship Program and book drives that help kiddos take flight.
  • Lend a hand at community events and spread the awareness by sharing local resources.
