Together Georgia logo



Together Georgia is the new name of our state’s most venerable organization for child and family services providers: the Georgia Association of Homes and Services for Children (GAHSC).

Since its inception 50 years ago, GAHSC has been a tireless champion of children all across the Peach State.

While we’re proud of what GAHSC has accomplished over its long history, we’ve fundamentally redesigned the organization to add even more value to the hard-working providers serving Georgia’s children and families!




A clear, consistent path for the future of Georgia children and families


Proven ability to reach key decision-makers on members' behalf


Regular member meetings and special gatherings to talk shop and brainstorm


Staff training and regular news bulletins with critical changes and information

Together Georgia Events



Together GA, as the foremost and most recognizable umbrella association for child welfare agencies in Georgia, has provided Bethany Christian Services of GA excellent opportunities to engage and partner with other child and family services agencies. It has also afforded incredible learning and advocacy opportunities as it continues its tireless efforts promoting the wellbeing of children in the State. I sincerely value the support we receive from the team at Together GA.

Through our membership with Together GA, we have been able to increase our presence in the community. There's a spirit of collaboration, communication, and education. Our Mission is "We Build Families" and we seek to work alongside others who share that mission. Together GA provides a space for us to share our challenges and our accomplishments. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of an organization with a legislative presence and strong voice of advocacy.

Mavis E. Williamson

When we started Uniting Hope 4 Children two years ago I didn't know anyone in the field of child welfare. While partnering with Together Georgia we have been able to meet and collaborate with many partner providers and state leaders. I can't think of a better organization that helps support and set vision for children across our state. We owe much of our success to Together Georgia.

Together Georgia is a conduit for communication among child welfare professionals where we can share ideas, solve problems and create successful changes for the future of Georgia’s children and families. With professional collaboration and a strong, influential legislative voice, it brings great value and connectivity to The Methodist Home.

As the CEO of a child-placing agency which is seeking to be the best we can be, it is imperative to engage with, collaborate with and have influence on colleagues, policy makers and legislators who impact the work we do. GAHSC [now Together Georgia] provides the best way to accomplish this.

Twin Cedars Youth and Family Services, Inc. has been a member of GAHSC [now Together Georgia] for 20 years. Through membership youth and family serving agencies can more effectively advocate, educate and in-form; advocate for Georgia's children and families; educate one another on best and most promising practices; [and] inform public policy makers, legislators and funders. Join us and make a difference!
