Our work is guided by Economic and Community Profile Data, Census Data, and the Annie B. Casey Foundation Kid’s Count Data. We believe in following the data and providing appropriate interventions throughout the birth to eternal life cycle. By working with the community, we believe our children and parents in the East Macon Community can be successful citizens and be empowered to improve their quality of life for generations to come.
Our focus is to assist all children and their families, no matter what their circumstances, to increase their awareness and preparedness of the opportunities available in the Macon and Georgia Community.
