What is Family Connection?
Controlled at the community level, Family Connection is a statewide network of Georgia counties committed to improving results for children and families through broad-based community collaborative efforts. The community collaborative is a public/private partnership comprised of local business leaders, civic organizations, faith-based representatives, schools, local elected officials, public and private service providers and concerned citizens. Each county collaborative develops, implements and evaluates their community plan designed to ensure:
- Children are healthy
- Children are ready to start school
- Children are successful in school
- Families are strong and self-sufficient
- Communities are strong
