The mission of the Fayette County Board of Family and Children Services is to “strengthen Georgia by providing Individuals and Families access to services that promote self-sufficiency, independence, and protect Georgia’s vulnerable children and adults.”
County boards play a vital role in helping to make the Division of Family and Children Services’ programs more meaningful to the families and children they are designed to serve. Georgia’s most valuable and most fragile resource is people. With the help and advice of Board Members, the Division will assist disadvantaged individuals and families to progress toward economic independence and a more stable life.
The Fayette County Board of Family and Children Services is an active liaison to the general public whose continuing support is necessary to the success of the overall mission of the Division.
Fayette County’s Board of Family and Children Services is made up of five volunteering citizens from across the county. Each member has been appointed to the Board by the Fayette County Board of Commissioners for a five year term. Each Board member serves as a link between the County’s Department of Family and Children’s Services and the local Fayette County community.
The Board meets every other month at the Department of Family and Children’s Services office, 905 Hwy. 85 South in Fayetteville. Regular attendance and active participation is required.
Board members are compensated $25 per meeting.
