Our History

The Spalding County Collaborative Authority for Families and Children was created under the authority of Act 677, adopted March 27, 1998 and amended May 1, 2002 by the General Assembly of the State of Georgia. Designated as the local decision making body for prioritizing the needs of families and children, the Spalding Collaborative brings community partners together to develop, implement, and evaluate plans that address the serious challenges facing Spalding County’s children and families.

 The Collaborative has positioned itself as a non-profit focusing on networking and relationships; connecting both the general public to partners and partners to each other. While there is no one sentence to explain what Spalding Collaborative does, the tag line says it all,

“Helping People Help Others”
