Catoosa County Family Collaborative
We are one of the Georgia Family Connection county collaboratives, the largest statewide
network of communities in the nation, which has made a commitment to improve results for children and families. Each collaborative serves as the local decision-making body for its community and
develops a plan with strategies to improve results in five areas:
• Healthy children
• Children ready to start school
• Children succeeding in school
• Stable self-sufficient families
• Strong communities
Collaborative members are made up of human
service providers, community- based organizations, elected officials, business & civic leaders, and
families & concerned citizens. If YOU fall into any of these category groups, then we invite you to
become a part of our Catoosa Family Collaborative! Please contact our coordinator, Phil Ledbetter 706-935-5018 / email@example.com or visit www.catoosafamily.com for more information.
Habitat for Humanity
Catoosa County HFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor – “sweat equity” – into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
Your talents, skills and knowledge are critical to the success of families acquiring “a decent house in a decent community for God’s people.”
Mentoring (Partnership 2000)
Catoosa County Partnership 2000 is a unified effort of schools, businesses, and the community to promote and support student success. One of the best ways to be involved is to be a mentor in the life of a Catoosa county student. This takes an hour each week, but is a great investment in the life of a young person who needs to know someone cares. For more information, please contact Buffy Hemphill, Partnership Coordinator at 706-937-6464 / 423-619-0816 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
