Hays Interagency Coordinating Council (HICC)

Kids don’t come with instructions!  Many times even professionals in the field of early childhood need a place where they can network with other providers and parents.

The Hays Interagency Coordinating Council (HICC)  meets quarterly and provides a forum in which parents and representatives of early childhood agencies can collaborate services.  The HICC is committed to collaboration that will lead to the development of comprehensive services that meet the needs of all young children and their families.

All membership meetings are at The Center for Health Improvement (2500 Canterbury – meeting room).  Bring your own lunch at 11:30, meeting lasts from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

What Happens at a HICC meeting?
Members go around the table and share updates or news about existing or new programs and/or events.  This is a chance to learn about new developments in the Early Childhood Community.  There are then reports from the HICC Steering Committee Chairs (Membership, Hospital to Home, Mental Health, Early Childhood Grants, Prenatal and Education).  Occasionally the group will provide feedback to various grant reports.  Finally, there is a short presentation/program about an early childhood event, program or issue.

How long does a HICC meeting last? 
The meetings, held at the Center for Health Improvement, are held over the noon hour and usually last no more than an hour.
