The Building a Region of Resilience Initiative is a Resilient Georgia, grant-funded project. It is designed to build capacity, increase community awareness and advocate for systems change that improves resilience and long-term outcomes for children and families in northwest Georgia. The focus, individuals struggling in the crisis of poverty and experiencing complex trauma.
By implementing 101 workshops and evidence-based trauma- and poverty-informed trainings, we aspire to build a common language that allows our partners and communities to collaborate for the benefit of our most vulnerable families.
The project is led by the 14 Georgia Family Connection Collaborative organizations in the network's Region 1 and guided by their leadership. (Connect with your county's Georgia Family Connection Collaborative)

Why This Project ?
When we have a better understanding of our neighbors in the crisis of poverty and the root causes to poverty, especially generational poverty, we can learn to connect in ways that break the cycle of poverty and create resiliency in our communities.
The understanding of trauma helps professionals, organizations and collaborative efforts better identify and meet the needs of the children, parents, families, and communities we all serve. When we improve our understanding, we increase our capacity for empathy and compassion in our approach.
