Child Well-Being

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.

The Agenda

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.
