Our mission at the Southeast Georgetown Community Council (SEGCC) is to facilitate community problem solving by bridging the gaps between neighbors, city agencies, elected representatives and other groups. We utilize a grassroots, approach in order to fulfill that mission by focusing on 3 goals: -Connecting community members through social and cultural events -Partnering with other organizations to better utilize resources and avoid duplication of effort -Promoting civic and economic engagement of Southeast Georgetown A community where no member feels excluded, shamed, or silenced and where all members -- of all races, ethnicity, citizenship, educational background, and socioeconomic status -- feel valued, respected, empowered, acknowledged, and included in the decisions that affect the community and neighborhoods.
Southeast Georgetown Community Council was established to follow these recommendations. This organization, working in partnership with local agencies, organizations, and city entities, work to assure that the assessment findings of needs and concerns are heard and addressed. SEGCC will promote and encourage that the community find and use its collective voice to better their lives and the lives of their families.
The city of Georgetown is undergoing unprecedented demographic growth and changes. This increase has also challenged the public and social service sector whose capacity for care has not always kept pace with the growth.
