In 2010, leaders in Greenville, SC came together to create the Institute for Child Success (ICS). Five years later, and thanks to the support of its many collaborators, ICS can now point to numerous accomplishments benefiting the lives of children and families.ICS is commemorating its five-year anniversary by looking forward. In the past five years, it has become clear that the ICS approach, and the type of work and expertise it requires, is in demand across the nation. Therefore, the ICS Board of Directors recently honed the ICS mission and vision to better reflect what we are already working toward, and to guide the organization in the years to come.
Although ICS has refined its mission, this multifaceted approach already permeates our work. For instance, as a result of ICS efforts in South Carolina, the Corporation for National and Community Service’s Social Innovation Fund (SIF) provided ICS with a multiyear federal grant in late 2014 to provide early childhood technical assistance to jurisdictions across the United States. Today, in Sonoma County, California, ICS is exploring the use of outcomes-based financing to expand preschool, and in Los Angeles County, we are working with partners to assess the economic impact of quality preschool on communities, the Los Angeles workforce, and the regional economy of Southern California.Read Publication >>
