About Us

The Telfair County Family Connection collaborative was established in 1999 to bring partners in the community together to partner with one another and to enhance collaboration.  Today, we are committed to continue this mission to provide a common forum for new and existing partners to share information, discuss priorities, and partner with one another.  This mission has become even more important to our community during the current pandemic.

Currently, we are providing training to collaborative partners on the roles and responsibilities of the collaborative.  We are providing information and support to partner agencies for resource development.  We are continuing the work of our Early Literacy Strategy Team, that seeks to enhance language nutrition for children 0-8.  In addition, we are seeking resources and planning activities to address school success.

Our collaborative also serves as the local task-force for the Partners In Prevention Project, which is coordinated by the Council on Alcohol and Drugs.  The purpose of this project is reduce alcohol and substance abuse by engaging partners, increasing community awareness, and implementing environmental strategies.

Join us as we continue to work with local and state partners to build more community awareness around these important issues and improve participation in these activities!

About Georgia Family Connection

Georgia Family Connection is the only statewide network of its kind in the country with partners in all 159 counties working toward measurably better outcomes for our children, families, and communities. This gives us a unique vantage point—not only to see the big picture—but also to operate effectively at a local level.

We disentangle the mess of barriers, service gaps, and inefficiencies obscuring progress for our most vulnerable families. We do that by connecting our partners to resources, helping coordinate and manage efforts, and empowering our communities to craft local solutions based on local decisions.

Georgia Family Connection Partnership (GaFCP) represents and promotes Georgia Family Connection’s work, provides expertise in planning and governance, administers the state-appropriated funds for the local Collaboratives, sets standards of excellence, and helps Collaboratives evaluate their progress.

The state’s designated KIDS COUNT grantee, GaFCP also provides state agencies and policymakers with current, reliable data they need to inform decisions about improving conditions for the communities they serve.

Our Work

At Georgia Family Connection, we work to ensure that all children are healthy, primed for school, and succeed when they get there; families are stable, self-sufficient, and productive; and communities are vibrant, robust, and thriving.

None of these result areas stand in isolation. They overlap. By collaborating across sectors to address them, we nurture children and families who thrive in vibrant communities—everywhere. Because we work toward measurably better outcomes for everyone.
