5toOne

5toOne

5toONE, a project of the Great Start Collaborative of Traverse Bay, is our way of addressing the persistent challenges of raising young children in rural northern Michigan by creating a 5-county system of resources that both provides support and inspiration to all families and addresses the acute needs of families most in need of help. 5toONE Neighborhood Centers may be found in several communities across our 5-county service area where children and families can gather for playgroups and networking, connect with local and regional supports, and learn about child development. 5toONe publishes annually a Family Resource, convenes meetings with community stakeholders to amplify parents’ voice, and advocates for increased funding for early childhood.
