What They're Saying

Together GA, as the foremost and most recognizable umbrella association for child welfare agencies in Georgia, has provided Bethany Christian Services of GA excellent opportunities to engage and partner with other child and family services agencies. It has also afforded incredible learning and advocacy opportunities as it continues its tireless efforts promoting the wellbeing of children in the State. I sincerely value the support we receive from the team at Together GA.

Mavis E. Williamson

Through our membership with Together GA, we have been able to increase our presence in the community. There's a spirit of collaboration, communication, and education. Our Mission is "We Build Families" and we seek to work alongside others who share that mission. Together GA provides a space for us to share our challenges and our accomplishments. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of an organization with a legislative presence and strong voice of advocacy.

Together Georgia is a conduit for communication among child welfare professionals where we can share ideas, solve problems and create successful changes for the future of Georgia’s children and families. With professional collaboration and a strong, influential legislative voice, it brings great value and connectivity to The Methodist Home.

Douglas L. Mead

As the CEO of a child-placing agency which is seeking to be the best we can be, it is imperative to engage with, collaborate with and have influence on colleagues, policy makers and legislators who impact the work we do. GAHSC [now Together Georgia] provides the best way to accomplish this.

Twin Cedars Youth and Family Services, Inc. has been a member of GAHSC [now Together Georgia] for 20 years. Through membership youth and family serving agencies can more effectively advocate, educate and in-form; advocate for Georgia's children and families; educate one another on best and most promising practices; [and] inform public policy makers, legislators and funders. Join us and make a difference!
