At a recent Division of Family and Children Services (Regional Two) Stakeholders meeting, our very own, Jennifer Stein, was honored with an award of appreciation for her partnership and work on their Community Collaborative Initiative. Stein’s efforts have assisted the department in utilizing Prevent Child Abuse Georgia’s Caregiver Helpline that aligns callers with area community resources. Over the past six months the committee Stein chairs has met several times with Family Connection Directors from Region Two, where the agencies worked together strategically to bring local resources to one central informational intake point-PCA Georgia’s Helpline and Resource Directory Map.

Helping caregivers and professionals have access to the most current local resources for supporting the needs of their families is a huge benefit to North Georgia.
