Mission Statement

Family Connection Vision

Our Vision:
Lumpkin County's children will become self-sufficient, capable, productive adults who will provide a nourishing environment for their own children and families.
Our Mission:
To build and provide a comprehensive community network to assist families in developing resources to help their children succeed in school and in life.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is an opportunity for adult leaders in the community to play a role in shaping a child's future. It is a chance to be a role model, and a friend and to provide a positive influence in that child's life.

We offer three ways for you to get involved:

  1. Individual mentoring
  2. Classroom mentoring
  3. Tutoring

Description

What is Family Connection? Family Connection is the largest state wide network of communities in the nation. There is a Family Connection Collaborative in each of the 159 counties in Georgia. Each year the Georgia General Assembly makes funds available to each Family Connection site.

Each community develops a plan with strategies to improve results in five areas:

  • Healthy Children
  • Children ready for school
  • Children succeeding in school
  • Stable, Self-sufficient families
  • Strong Communities
