Regional Coalition: Building a Region of Resilience NWGA

Mission & Broad Goals

Building a Region of Resilience Northwest Georgia (BRRNWGA) is comprised of 15 counties in Northwest Georgia and guided by Georgia Family Connection collaboratives in the region. BRRNWGA seeks to increase community awareness of the effects of trauma on children and communities, support positive youth development, and influence systems change by increasing awareness of the Strengthening Families framework. The coalition advocates for system changes that eliminate the barriers and inefficiencies standing in the way of progress and positive outcomes for the well-being of kids and families.

They accomplish this by:

  • Implementing a Theory of Change through capacity building of coordinators and key collaborative partners to advocate for trauma/poverty-informed strategies 

  • Utilizing evidence-based programs and practices to build upon systems change and to increase awareness of the Strengthening Families framework throughout the region

  • Evaluating services and programs to understand successes and determine the impact of approaches and sustainability of the coalition’s work

Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Fannin, Floyd, Gilmer, Gordon, Haralson, Murray, Paulding, Pickens, Polk, Walker, Whitfield
