Voices for Georgia's Children

Focusing on the Whole Child

Our work is guided by our belief that all children deserve to have their needs met, giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential. We focus on the “Whole Child,” which allows us to identify how different policies impact children and to propose solutions that benefit children on multiple levels.

Our Work

Our work is guided by our belief that all children deserve to have their needs met.


A Solid Start

Research is clear – quality pre-k learning has a profound impact on a child’s future. Children deserve high-quality pre-Kindergarten education so they have the best start in life.


Healthy Minds and Bodies

Did you know asthma is the number one reason children miss school? Did you know 60% of youth do not receive the mental health services they need? Children in our state deserve access to affordable, quality healthcare.


Strong and Stable Families

We believe a child’s ability to grow socially, emotionally, academically and economically relies safe, stable and nurturing environments.


Fair Treatment

Did you know effective and restorative discipline and intervention can be the difference between helping a child understand and improve their behavior and a life in the criminal justice system? We know when children receive guidance and support, they are better prepared to be productive and responsible citizens.


Quality Out-of-School Time

High quality afterschool and summer learning programs provide youth a safe place to go outside of the classroom, as well as the opportunity to explore new interests and engage in hands-on learning. This work is led by the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network (GSAN).

September is Hunger Action Month

Did you know 580,000 kids in Georgia don’t know where their next meal is coming from?

When given access to adequate nutrition, the impact is clear: children perform better in school, are healthier, and have the chance to become productive adults. However, children who are not provided adequate, healthy food often underperform in school, are less likely to receive a secondary education, and are more likely to experience mental health problems.
