Who We Are
Family Connection is present in every county in Georgia. It is the largest statewide network of communities in the nation that have made a commitment to improve results for children and families.
In our community we accomplish this through Partner Engagement. We develop strategies to connect community organizations, partners, and families. We strive to enhance communication by sharing data and other information, as well as linking people with community services. Our goal is to build capacity in the Fitzgerald/Ben Hill community, by developing resources and increasing community-wide cooperation.
Using a family-centered approach, schools, health and human service agencies, business, the faith community, law enforcement, nonprofit organizations, civic clubs, and others work together with families, focusing on academics, physical and mental health, nurturing parenting, economic success, and community service. We tap existing resources, streamline systems to be more efficient and effective, and initiate new projects.
