ICS works with service providers, non-profit organizations, and government at all levels to move toward improving outcomes for children and families. Our approach is unique to the needs of each project and location, focusing  not only on the final product but in the process as well.

“We needed top-tier expertise in evidence-based strategies for dramatically improving outcomes for young children while we also needed knowledge and guidance navigating the daunting complexity of outcomes based financing. In our relatively short time of working together, I’ve come to realize how uniquely capable the Institute for Child Success is in that intersection. As we seek to unlock the potential of Pay for Success nationally, organizations that can marry outcomes financing expertise with specific areas of community change knowledge are essential. The feasibility study ICS produced for Spartanburg legitimized a dream. We still have a long way to go but we would have never reached this point without them.”


– Chris Story, Assistant City Manager, City of Spartanburg, SC (currently in transaction structuring with ICS for a PFS project for which ICS coached the feasibility study)

 

“The Institute for Child Success was instrumental in helping to create a clear and concise framework for the expansion of Quality Counts. The process of developing the brief turned out to be almost as important as the brief itself. The ICS associates invested a lot of time with us; through face to face conversations, conference calls, and board presentations, which in turn allowed for an in-depth understanding of the value of Quality Counts.  The result was more than we had hoped for.”

– Barbara Manoski, Quality Counts Program Director, Spartanburg County First Steps

 

“The Institute for Child Success has been a critical thought partner for Reach Out and Read in the Carolinas, supporting the evolution of our evaluation work and the case statement for investments through their Cost Benefit Analysis of the intervention. These core pieces of work have created avenues for new partnership and deeper understanding of the Reach Out and Read impact in the region.”

– Callee Boulware, Executive Director, Reach Out and Read Carolinas
