Mission:

Strengthening Families and Communities Coalition of Atlanta will strengthen families through sharing information, encouraging effective policies, and maximizing resources by working in collaboration.

History:

Since May of 2010, more than 40 organizational partners have joined in coalition to establish the Strengthening Families & Communities Coalition Atlanta facilitated by the Global Peace Festival Foundation. This coalition of organizations has now established sub-committees that evolve around the priority issues that were determined to be those most critical to strengthening families and the community of the Greater Atlanta area. As a result, these committees, along with the full Coalition, have worked feverishly to develop a body of research and proposed “Best Practices” that when implemented can make a positive impact on families and the community of Atlanta. Additionally, these committees were asked to present national policy recommendations to a national state legislative group that included these recommendations in its national legislative agenda for 2011. Finally, the Coalition took responsibility to plan a “Strengthening Families & Communities Summit” on December 9th, 2010.
