Healthy Families Initiative | Register For Classes!

We launched the Healthy Families Initiative (HFI) in our own backyard of Peachtree Corners and Norcross – one of the most economically and racially diverse areas of the state. This community-based program focuses on finding ways to encourage healthy family relationships, strong marriages and stable families.

Through partnerships with local churches, nonprofits, schools, and businesses, we’re ensuring the Healthy Families Initiative is a success and sustainable for years to come. We are driven by a belief – supported by experience and research- that people from all walks of life are more likely to flourish if they have an intact, healthy family and strong relationships.

An event to learn what role your business can play in helping the un- and under-employed.

Georgia is ranked 44th in the nation in terms of poverty with a poverty rate of 18.3%. There are 3.8 million people in Georgia with a criminal record and 10.4% of teens age 16-19 are not in school and not working. But many of these at-risk individuals are ready to flourish if given a chance.
