Nearly 37,000 children in Northwest Georgia lack the basic opportunities and resources they need to thrive. Uniting together to improve the well-being of everyone regardless of race or zip code is the more that we are working towards.
Let's do MORE together.
In 2021, United Way of Northwest Georgia, with a grant from the Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia, launched the Child Well-Being Movement. This movement engages and brings together people and resources across sectors to invest in strategies that drive lasting improvements in the well-being of children, families, and the communities that surround them.
Nearly 7,000 children in Northwest Georgia live in communities with low or very low child well-being.
With our partners, we can ensure this is an equitable, thriving community.
