Regional Coalition: Resilient & United Communities of South Georgia

Mission & Broad Goals

Resilient & United Communities of South Georgia serves a rural population that experiences poverty and limited access/knowledge of resources and services. Coalition leaders include Greater Valdosta United Way (GVUW), Legacy Behavioral Health Services, The Haven, Girls on the Run South Georgia, Family Connections, Youth Impact Center and Camp Rock. These rural communities have seen increased concerns of adverse mental health, suicide, human trafficking, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). To address these issues, they will provide evidence-based training to parents, law enforcement, first responders, and stakeholders. 

Therefore, Resilient and United Communities of South Georgia’s mission is to create positive change by bringing resources together to improve people’s lives by mobilizing the caring power of community through: 

  • Continuing to develop mental health awareness throughout the region through training and education

  • Focusing on suicide prevention in youth up to age 26

  • Evaluating training outcomes to assess the impact on trauma-informed awareness and education

  • Promoting resiliency in South Georgia through a unified trauma-informed response

  • Investing in Education, Income, and Health and advocating for a good quality of life and strong community

Coalition Geographic Service Area:

Atkinson, Berrien, Brooks, Clinch, Cook, Echols, Lanier, Lowndes
