About Us

Partners working together to develop, implement and evaluate plans that address the challenges facing Bulloch County’s children and families.

Accountability drives the Bulloch County Commission on Human Services, Inc., a Family Connection Collaborative (BCHS) decision-making process. In addition, maintaining a high level of integrity while respecting the 32-year history of BCHS allows members to make decisions based on core values. The work of BCHS is focused on: 1) the implementation of programs identified as “best practices” or scientifically research based; 2) making improvements in areas of child and family well-being through the  exposure of  direct and in-direct services, linking resources and the brokerage of existing community programs; 3) leveraging local, state and federal funds to support our community driven plans; and 4) the implementation of a community based local decision-making process which results in the development of a community plan supported by collaborative members. BCHS has proven to be a leader in these areas. Since 1996, BCHS has directly leveraged more than 23 million dollars from local, state and federal funds to support our BCHS community plans.

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.
