DeKalb County

Last year, we unlocked the potential of more than 30,000 individuals, children, and families in DeKalb

Our Child Well-Being Index tells us there are more children and families in need in DeKalb. They aren’t just numbers on a map, they’re your neighbors.

How are the children in DeKalb county doing?

Our goal

To help every child unlock their full potential.

By improving education, healthcare, and economic mobility in the communities where they live. Every child includes every child in DeKalb.

What we're doing

Based on local child well-being insights, the DeKalb County Advisory Boards determined Building Strong Learners and Increasing Economic Stability as the most important areas to focus efforts.

We know it takes every sector to remove barriers and that’s why we invite individuals, corporations, non-profits, and government entities to create viable solutions and drive sustainable change in DeKalb County with a focus on these priorities.

Thank you to our partners creating a stronger DeKalb county.
