The mission of Meriwether County Family Connection, Inc is to empower families to be self-sufficient by identifying, developing, evaluating, and enhancing the delivery of community based services through collaboration and community partnership.
Our vision for Meriwether County is that residents will become life long learners who are economically self-sufficient, healthy, safe, and actively involved in the community.
Collaborative organizations are committed to our mission of improving conditions for at-risk children, families, and communities. They work closely with communities to:
- foster relationships with local partners,
- increase policymakers’ awareness of local issues,
- implement proven programs and practices, and
- leverage additional funding to support community plans.
We bring together—at the same table—the social worker, the nurse, the sheriff, the teacher, the minister, the business person, the public servant, and parents. We discuss visions for our community, assess the needs in our county, and facilitate collaboration so all agencies work together to meet those needs.
Together we set an agenda that establishes our priorities and allocates resources to achieve results for families and children. We measure results for our work by tracking locally selected indicators of child well-being using Georgia KIDS COUNT data.
We believe that local decision-making—grounded in reliable data and best practices—will drive the change we want to see in Meriwether County.
