About Us

Family Connection Camden, as part of the Georgia Family Connection statewide network, is a voluntary “meet and confer” Collaborative organization and promotes a family-based, community partnership environment that strategically plans around and advocates for children and family needs and challenges in Camden County.  

Family Connection Camden is a community collaborative with a strong leadership team, executive director, and community partners that together bring to the table decades of experience in working not only in rural Camden County, but with its most vulnerable and underserved populations.  The leadership team is comprised of community leaders in the fields of prevention, education, mental health, public service, military, and faith-based organizations.

Our Collaborative partners consist of community and regional stakeholders from:

  • business
  • faith-based organizations
  • local government
  • various healthcare systems
  • nonprofit sector
  • board of education
  • colleges and universities
  • early care and learning
  • workforce development
  • law enforcement
  • at large community members
  • concerned citizens from the populations we serve

Family Connection Camden is committed to making a collective impact in improving outcomes for our children and families by identifying and bridging gaps in community resources and services, creating system changes, and eliminating barriers.

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.
