2019 State of Hope Application Now Open!

Hope is a movement throughout Georgia to create communities where children are safe, thriving and full of hope.  Our mission is to cultivate family-centered support systems by connecting, equipping and nurturing diverse community collaborators...

State of Hope is an initiative that seeks to encourage nonprofits, philanthropies, government, businesses and communities to collaborate closely to build local safety nets that will prevent conditions that contribute to disparities in education, threaten a family's self-sufficiency and could lead to child abuse and neglect.  Our ultimate vision is having 14 Regions of Hope across Georgia.  This could be one or multiple sites/projects in each region.
See State of Hope for more information from Georgia's Division of Family & Children Services.
