Dougherty County Family Literacy Council is partnering with DFCS to help disadvantaged families become self-sufficient, stable, successful—and more literate in family wellness and well-being—through a cluster of free education programs, including after-school care, counseling, and home parenting and GED curriculum.

“In Dougherty County, one of the biggest dynamics is poverty and neglect,” said Cheryl Vinson, executive director of the Georgia Family Connection Collaborative. “But imagine the types of changes we can make in Dougherty County if we focus in on educating moms and dads on their child’s development and how to be the best parents they can be—before the baby’s even born.”
