Gov. Kemp called on Georgia residents to mobilize and engage in an online platform where generous Georgians can financially support or volunteer their time to meet the needs of vulnerable children
Augusta, GA – According to the statement, by partnering with Promise686 and joining the network of responders, supporters gain access to the needs of new parents and can rally their churches and community groups to work together to meet those needs.
Through connections established by Promise686, Georgians can proactively ensure that new parents have what they need to welcome a child into the world, keep their family safe and intact, and build a strong foundation for long-term success.
In 2016, the State of Georgia and Promise686 established a partnership network through an online platform called CarePortal to support the needs of vulnerable children and families.
To date, the program has served more than 4,400 children in 15 counties across Georgia. Through the support of new partners, the program can grow to serve even more vulnerable children and families across the state. Promise686 is seeking partners in all 159 counties.
Interested individuals and organizations can learn more about enrolling at promise686.org/georgia. DHS and Promise686 will initiate a growth strategy to increase community responders, effective immediately.
