25 Things You Need to Know About Region 1—Bringing Communities Together to Help Families ThrivePrint This Post
Georgia Family Connection turned 25 this year. If you’re part of a family, or you’re someone who supports families and communities in this state, this milestone anniversary should matter to you. And here’s why:
Georgia Family Connection is the only statewide network of its kind in the country dedicated to the health and well-being of families and communities.
On any given day thousands of Georgians are sitting at tables in 159 counties focused on improving conditions for the children and families they know best.
We’re committed to our mission because we believe all people have the ability to become productive citizens. We help people reach their potential by empowering children and families, and the partners and stakeholders who support them.
We have a lot to celebrate, but we have a lot more work to do as we embark on the next quarter century. So we’re going to take you on a journey—region by region—throughout our anniversary year to share with you the landscape for children and families across our state. We’re going to show you what Georgia Family Connection is doing—and plans to do—to ensure that our communities and state thrive.
We begin by sharing with you the 25 things you need to know about Region 1. You will hear from Georgia’s speaker of the House, a state representative, juvenile court judges, and Collaborative partners, just how the 15 county Collaboratives in the northwest corner of Georgia are bringing communities together to help improve the lives of their fellow Georgians in that part of the state.
Watch this video, produced by the coordinators in Region 1:
Then stay tuned in February, when you’ll hear from Region 2.
We believe that by working together we can nurture children and families who thrive in vibrant communities—everywhere. So get involved with your local Georgia Family Connection Collaborative:
