Are you an employer of a small or large business?
We need the village to raise a child, and we need those children to grow into young adults ready and available to work. So, we are thrilled you have landed on our web page to learn more. Within this site you will find resource articles, tool kits and links to other websites and resource tools to enable your company to support your employees who are parents, grandparents and caretakers of our young children.

What is Great Start? Great Start was founded by the State of Michigan to wrap our arms around the resources available to children and their parents/ caretakers. Resources are available; we will help you uncover the path to get to them in our community. Great Start works collaboratively with parents, schools, and numerous state and private agencies to help connect the dots and ensure that every child receives a Great Start in life. So, please if you have any questions, call us and we’ll be happy to help you in any way we can.
