Making a Difference in Georgia

An important element of Georgia's child welfare program is the development of a strengths-based, prevention-driven community response to vulnerable children and families. Each year, Georgia's Division of Family and Children Services issues a "Statement of Need" to seek proposals from non-profit organizations and public entities to provide coordinated community-based programs and services.

A statewide needs assessment is conducted annually to identify family and community service needs through:

  • Consultation with Division leadership, unit, and program managers.
  • An online survey for regional and county directors, administrators, supervisors, and case managers.
  • Input from service providers and community stakeholders representing all PSSF program areas and service models.
The annual Statement of Need (SoN) incorporates feedback from all sources in response to changing family needs, community resources, and state and federal priorities.
