Coweta Family Connection (CFC) is a local body of agency and community individuals focusing on networking and relationships; connecting both the general public to partners and partners to each other.
CFC began in 2010 bringing various partners to the table to discuss community issues. For the first few years, CFC actively worked to help individuals gain a GED or employment through collaboration. CFC shifted our focus to poverty and ways to assist individuals and families to break the cycle of poverty and reach self-sufficiency through partner engagement.
We’ve also worked to reach parents of children ages 3-5 and not enrolled in school to increase school readiness and success. For FY22 CFC will be working on community-wide mental health issues. We also work on transportation issues, work collaboratively with local emergency food providers, provide a Resource Guide, and hold annual events.
Please help us achieve our goals of assisting individuals and families to reach self-sufficiency, increasing school readiness and success for children and youth, educating the community on mental health and wellness issues, and providing a Community Resource Guide to link families to assistance providers across the area.Donate
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.
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.
