Collaborative Description and Activities to Strengthen Effectiveness: 
 
The Wayne County Family Connection Collaborative has been a part of Wayne County for many years. Our Collaborative is focused on sustaining close relationships with our partners through supporting our schools, civic organizations, and our community.   Over the past year, due to the COVID Pandemic, many of the strategies identified in our Plan where not fully executed or had to be put on hold, therefore, our FY 22 Plan has not changed dramatically.  Our Collaborative continues to look at areas of school success and opportunities for improvement as a concern within our community.  The Collaborative has partnered with the Wayne County Board of Education to work towards meeting the requirements of making Wayne County a Get Georgia Reading County (which is our Reading Empowers Achievement and Discovery in all Students (READS) Program). Due to the COVID Pandemic, the Collaborative was unable to meet much of the issues and concerns surrounding the Homeless population within the county.  Therefore, the Collaborative will expand our partnerships with several agencies in the community to include our surrounding counties, by reducing the number of Homeless Families.  The Collaborative has expanded its efforts to improving mental health awareness, support and treatment, during the COVID Pandemic and beyond, by recognizing that the majority of individuals requesting treatment were directly related to two identifying factors; Drug Abuse and Family Violence. The Collaborative has partnered with the Wayne County Recovery Coalition to seek to reduce the impact of Opioid use/substance abuse disorders throughout Wayne County. The primary function of our Collaborative will be to provide Education to Middle Grades and High School Students. As the COVID Pandemic restrictions continue our Collaborative is committed to find ways to meet the community needs.  Our FY 22 Plan will continue to focus on Partner engagement.
