Controlled at the community level, Harris County Family Connection (HCFC) is present in every county in Georgia. It is the largest statewide network of communities in the nation that have made a commitment to improve results for children and families.
HCFC, Inc. is a partnership of 33 organizations working with families to research the needs of children and families in our community, and to work together to address those needs. We serve as the local decision-making body, bringing community partners together to develop, implement, and evaluate plans that address the serious challenges facing Harris County’s children and families.
Check out some of the projects that have been initiated through this process on page 10 in The First United Methodist Church of Pine Mountain Newsletter.
