NHS Helps kids get off to a "Great Start"!


Great Start collaborated with NORTHSTAR to implement a coordinated system of community resources to help families of children from birth to five. Families, members of the community, and business leaders help to ensure that needed services and resources are available to support and guide families in the early learning of their infants and young children.

Pictured are Peg James, NHS Public Relations & Foundation and Jonathan Ringel, Great Start Coordinator, with the Resource Tool Kits. These kits provide information on parenting skills, safety, community resources, interactive activities for parent and child/children and other resources focusing on social and emotional health of children ages 0-5.
