Focusing on the Whole Child

We amplify the voices of Georgia’s children at the highest levels of government. Because we believe every child in Georgia can thrive when given the opportunity, we advance laws, policies, and actions that improve all areas of child wellbeing – particularly those furthest from opportunity. Addressing one area, such as quality education, while neglecting others like adequate nutrition, healthcare, and safe and stable housing, only leads to marginal improvements in a child’s life. In doing so, we must also look at disparities and inequities in access to the foundations needed to thrive. Time and again, determined advocates of all sorts have worked to chip away at barriers impeding Georgia’s kids. However, until we intentionally and holistically address systemic inequities stemming from income level, educational status, geography, disability, gender, sexual orientation, and race, efforts to help the children and youth of our state will fall woefully short. By championing the “whole child” approach, Voices is leading a movement to advance systemic change on behalf of Georgia’s children.
