About Us

Brantley County Family Connection was founded in 1996 as part of the Georgia Family Connection statewide network.  We build strength in Brantley County by empowering our community to make decisions at a local level.  For partnerships of community members to develop shared planning, review results and stay accountable for Brantley County’s children, youth and families to be successful in their lives.

Our vision includes a community where all children enter our world healthy, prepared, and successful in their education, and become prosperous, productive, self-sufficient citizens in a safe, relaxed environment.  We believe this vision is obtained through our mission. Which is to work together, as a collaborative, to improve our communities by exploring opportunities for community growth and development and by seeking solutions to the problems we may face.

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.
