The 10 counties located in and around metro Atlanta are home to more than 4 million residents. And if you’re looking for Peachtree Street you will surely confuse your GPS, because there are more than 55 streets with that name.

Offering family-focused cooking classes to address obesity prevention in high-risk communities, introducing alcohol prevention curriculum for middle schools, providing leadership training for retirees, encouraging men in the community to volunteer in schools, and providing health services for students in school-based health centers are just some of the ways Georgia Family Connection is improving conditions for children and families in Region 3.
