    • Status of young children in Charlevoix, Emmet, and N.Antrim Counties Great Start Collaborative Charlevoix-Emmet-N.Antrim
    • The Great Start System  The Great Start Collaborative was formed in March, 2006 from a project grant awarded to our community from the state Early Childhood Investment Corporation.  Our vision and mission are designed to further the well-being of 0-5 year olds and their families in our community.  We have many excellent and successful programs in our communities. This report focuses on areas of need for our youngest members. A community report on all of the indicators measured is available and contact information is listed on following pages.
    • Community Conditions  The state of our economy negatively effects the condition of our children. With unemployment higher and wages lower than the state average, 7-15% of the approximately 5,000 young children (0-5 year olds) live in poverty in each of our counties.  Almost one of every four children live in a single parent family and of all births, 9-16%, have mothers without a high school diploma. FOR COMPLETE REPORT... Contact Marie Sarchet, Great Start Coordinator sarchet@verizon.net 989.370.2019
    • Data  Actual Percentages by County 25 20 15 10 Antrim 5 Charlevoix Emmet 0 0-5 in Single Mothers Poverty Parent without a 2000 Families HS Diploma 2000 2004
    • Physical Health  Healthy children and families are a goal of the Great Start system. Our three counties are above the state average in immunizing our young children.  The areas of need in physical health reside in women who are smoking during pregnancy. All counties are higher than the state average of 14.4%. Also high is the percentage of children that are enrolled in publicly assisted health care insurance programs. FOR COMPLETE REPORT...

    • Social/Emotional Health  State and local communities are spending more time looking at social/emotional health of our young children. A committee examining expulsion rates from daycares and preschools is currently gathering data to support growing attention in this area.  Two out of three of our counties are equal to or higher than the state level of children 0-5 in foster care. Many Great Start collaborative members are concerned about this issue. FOR COMPLETE REPORT... Contact Marie Sarchet, Great Start Coordinator sarchet@verizon.net 989.370.2019

    • Parent Education  One area Great Start examines is the preparedness of parents and their education when children are born.The percentage of births to teens is higher than the state average in two out of three of our counties.  Many of these parents need food assistance and are low-income eligible for many programs when their children are born.

    • Early Care and Child Education  63-70% of all 0-6 year olds have both parents in the labor force. Where do the children stay and what is the quality of that care? These are important questions for our community to examine.  Of the 38 licensed child care centers in our three counties only FOUR are accepting infants in September of 2006.  The percent of 3-6 year olds receiving special education is rising in two of three of our counties.

    • Basic Needs and Safety  Children need the basics of life to thrive and survive. One abused child in our community is one too many. Approximately 225 children were substantiated victims of abuse or neglect in our three counties.  All three of our counties are above the state rate of births that are paid for by Medicaid.  The number of children 0-5 needing food assistance in each of our three counties has risen for three years in a row.

    • Conclusions  The youngest children of our community and their families need our attention, ideas, and focus.  The Great Start Collaborative of Charlevoix, Emmet, and N.Antrim counties is committed to analyzing this data and recommending change and action to improve the statistics of our community.  If you are interested in participating on a strategic evaluation team that will be addressing community issues on behalf of young children and their families please contact: Contact Sommer Poquette, Great Start Director greatstartforkids@gmail.com 231.547.9812. ext 232
