ICS is part of the 80+ member network known as Greenville County Care Coordination Collaborative. GCCCC was established by Help Me Grow SC and is a cooperative of agencies, organizations, and care providers with expertise in childhood health and developmental issues. A community needs assessment revealed gaps in services and an urgency to address housing instability.
ICS Senior Fellow Janice Gruendel, accompanied by Allison Logan of Bridgeport Prospers in Connecticut, served as keynote speakers at the recent Creativity Connects: Arts in Early Learning event in Denver. The Creativity Connects series brings together community leaders in five diverse cities to spark a dialogue about early learning through the arts. The project, funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, is being implemented in partnership between Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, a national leader in early childhood arts integration; and ICS. The October 18th event in Denver was the fourth event in the series.
