Seminole County Family Connection hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Donalsonville office is located at 204 East Sixth Street in the Board of Education Building room number A113.

Billie Lee Houston, born and raised in the Donalsonville, has returned to provide a service in our community as the new Family Connection coordinator for Seminole County. She assumes the position previously held my Meghan Baldwin.

Seminole County Family Connection is a county collaborative organization that works together to improve conditions for children and families in Seminole County as part of the statewide Georgia Family Connection network.

Houston commented, “Our community is passionate about literacy. When I was living in East Georgia I was a part of a meeting where my hometown was mentioned for the great efforts taken to improve literacy and I was so proud that I knew the people helping with that goal. Now I get to personally be involved and look forward to adding new collaborators, more diversity, and ideas to our community to help continue working toward our main collaborative goal of improving reading skills and the quality of life for Seminole County.”

Houston’s duties, in her new role as coordinator, will be to plan, facilitate, communicate and coordinate services for partners participating in this work. This includes providing any upcoming grant opportunities for collaborative partners or the collaborative goal, engaging community stakeholders in the work of the Collaborative, conducting annual data reviews, and preparing required reports and records for the Collaborative. 

Houston is a graduate from Middle Georgia State University with a BS in Public and Human Services.   Former Services have included being the Voluntary Coordinator for Tri County CASA in Appling County, Family Engagement Coordinator for Perry High School in Perry, Georgia along with serving in multiple community activities.  

Billie, along with her two daughters Rylee and Charlee June, are excited about the adventures ahead in her hometown community.
