COVID-19 upended the world. In April 2020, as the Public Health Emergency was underway, Voices for Georgia’s Children quickly assessed the highest policy priorities related to child well-being, creating a dashboard to track what state government was doing to mitigate the challenges presented by the pandemic as well as lay out recommendations for actions not yet taken. We compiled an evolving list of key resources for families and children to support their basic needs and mental health.
