Celebrating Success in 2017

2017 was a powerful year for the children of South Carolina — and with your help, ICS will continue this great work into 2018!

  • ICS championed South Carolina’s passage of the nation’s largest state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), an effective tool to fight poverty for working families with children.
  • ICS worked with stakeholders on urgent children’s issues, including: learning from the state’s Child Advocacy Centers how best to support child-abuse victims; creating a financial plan to implement a supportive continuum of child-centered services for families in Spartanburg; working with Greenville First Steps to launch Palmetto Shared Services for child care centers throughout the state, allowing them to save time and money; and developing high-quality early childhood care in North Charleston.
  • From Columbia to Austin to Seattle, hundreds of stakeholders attended ICS events discussing and developing systems-level reforms to fight child poverty, improve school readiness, close the discipline gap, and build a better future.
  • ICS completed four Pay for Success (PFS) feasibility studies focusing on outcomes-based programs to improve child outcomes in early education, child welfare, and home-visiting.
