In a county where 20.3% of children live in poverty and where the rate of children with a substantiated incident of abuse and/or neglect is 3.9% (51 per 1,000 children), Family Connection Camden is stepping up its efforts to ensure that all children and families are healthy and have access to health and wellness services, resources, and support, and that children are primed for school and succeed when they get there.

Family Connection Camden brings together local government, business, civic groups, faith-based institutions, family members, and concerned citizens to advocate for the county’s most vulnerable children and families, and to find ways to help them with their most difficult challenges.


KIDS COUNT is a state and national effort to track the well-being of children. Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, KIDS COUNT informs local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure a brighter future for all children.

The KIDS COUNT Data Book paints a picture of the conditions for children and families in Georgia and the rest of the nation. Policymakers, advocates, service providers, civic leaders, and funders use this information to inform their decisions about priorities, services, and resources for children and families.

Indicators of Child Well-Being

Georgia tracks 51 Indicators of Child Well-Being in five result areas that support our vision for a Georgia where all children are healthy, primed for school, and succeed when they get there; that all families are stable, self-sufficient, and productive; and that every community is vibrant, robust, and thriving.
