Several years ago, Pickens County First Steps and its board embarked on an early childhood collaborative, partnering with United Way of Pickens County and Prevent Child Abuse Pickens County to mobilize countless advocates for early childhood. This collaborative partnership has blossomed into an alliance that is effectively empowering families, connecting them to community resources and eliminating gaps in services.
Today, Children’s Services Council of Pickens County (CSCPC) is an alliance of 35 plus agencies in the county that serve families and children pre-natal to age 5. It works to disseminate information and educate local community resources about the needs of our county’s youngest learners. CSCPC is comprised of representatives from public and private organizations and individuals who are interested in and committed to the mission and purpose of the council.
To establish a coordinated service system to effectively maximize community resources to foster thriving children prenatal to age 5 and their families.
All Pickens County children are valued, supported, educated, safe and healthy.
