Randolph County Family Connection is a nonprofit, grassroots organization, and the “Official planning body for children and families in Randolph County.” We are a part of a 159 state-wide collaborative network of the Georgia Family Connection Partnership located in Atlanta, Georgia.
We do not provide direct services, however, we serve as a non-political entity that fosters a collaborative process in which partners work together to address and resolve the unique challenges facing our community.
Our vision is that all citizens of Randolph County will be healthy, educated, safe, socially stable, economically self-sufficient, and able to make responsible choices.
Our mission is to advocate, develop, and coordinate innovative services, and programs that will enhance the lives of children and families in Randolph County.
Health and Wellness Coalition of Randolph County

The team consists of local, regional, and state partners. Coalition team members develop plans, evaluate progress, and share findings. Membership is open to both organizations and individuals who have a desire to improve health outcomes in Randolph County.
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.
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.
