...is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit and is a collaborative of Georgia Family Connection Partnership, established by the state of Georgia in 1996 to manage collaboration that builds community capacity to meet the needs of families and children.

What does that mean?

  • We use data to identify issues affecting the well-being of children and families in our community.
  • We bring citizens and organizations together in strategy teams to develop plans that improve selected issues and establish benchmarks to measure whether the plans are effective.
  • We facilitate partnering to implement the plans, seeking the input of the families being served.
  • We seek outside funding to fill programming gaps when no other organization in the community has the capacity to provide needed services.
  • We build communication within strategy teams, between teams working on related issues, and with the public.
