The Clare-Gladwin Parent Coalition consists of parents, grandparents and caregivers who care for young children under 12 years of age in Clare and Gladwin Counties. The purpose of the Parent Coalition is to increase parent participation in early childhood planning and decision-making for Clare and Gladwin Counties. 

The Clare-Gladwin Great Start Parent Coalition works with the Great Start Collaborative toward the common goal of providing a great start for all children in Clare and Gladwin counties.

The Parent Coalition will:

  • Serve as a voice for parents in their community.

  • Assist in building public support for early childhood as an investment.

  • Support and participate in the assessment and strategic planning work of the Great Start Collaborative.

  • Strengthen the commitment of parents in the community, on behalf of young children.
