Grant: Advocacy for children to enroll in Medicaid or PeachCare
Established in 2003, Voices for Georgia’s Children is a nonprofit child policy and advocacy organization that envisions a Georgia where children are safe, healthy, educated, employable, and connected to their family and community. It is our mission to be a powerful, unifying voice for a public agenda that ensures the well-being of all of Georgia’s children.
Although Georgia has taken steps to improve the lives of children, there is still a lot of work to do. According to the latest Annie E. Casey Foundation Kids Count Data Book, Georgia ranks 37th among states for child well-being – a figure that is steadily improving, but still a disappointment for Georgia’s kids. If we want Georgia’s children to compete both nationally and internationally, we must start at the beginning and support children and their families from birth into young adulthood.
To fulfill our mission and, ultimately, make life better for Georgia’s children, we provide the necessary research-based information, measures, collective voice and proposed legislation to help guide decision makers in the right direction – that is, supporting policies that ensure Georgia’s children grow up to be healthy, educated and productive citizens. It’s a win for children, it’s a win for Georgia.
