Regional Coalition: Resilient Northeast Georgia

Mission & Broad Goals

The Resilient Northeast Georgia coalition prioritizes a trauma-informed behavioral health continuum of care, focusing its evidence-based efforts on urban, suburban, and rural areas. The four cornerstones of institutional support that ensure stewardship and success in the region are The Athens Area Community Foundation, Athens Wellbeing Project, Envision Athens, and the University of Georgia.


Within the twelve counties they serve, Resilient Northeast Georgia aims to:

  • Promote coordinated trauma-informed practices across systems and sectors

  • Advance the workforce through trauma-informed recruitment, education, and development

  • Build a common language and awareness of adversity, trauma, and resiliency

  • Advocate for changes across policies, programs, systems, and environments (PPSE), incorporating a justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) lens to the work

  • Create a sustainable model of collaborative action for the region
