Region 8 Times

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Regional-MapCollaboratives in the 16 counties located on the central western border of the state are working together to bring change for those living in poverty by providing food and essentials—and bringing hope—to children and families in need.

They’re focusing on school success by showing students how to make right or wrong choices that could affect their lives, and by connecting communities to local schools.

They’re also increasing awareness to mental health issues among school-aged youth, and connecting children, youth, and families suffering from behavioral health issues with the appropriate services.

These are just some of today’s top headlines. Get your Region 8 Times here:

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:

Last month we learned about the 25 things you need to know about Region 7—where 14 county Collaboratives are leading an epic rebellion to rid of the not-so-phantom menace that has invaded east central Georgia spreading poverty, obesity, hunger, and other unspeakable evils.

Check back in September, when we’ll hear from Region 9.

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. Find out why.
