Project Healthy Grandparents

Project Healthy Grandparents partners with grandparents who have taken on guardian roles for their grandchildren as an alternative to the foster care system. The program aims to improve the health and well-being of families in parent-absent homes through home visitations by nurses and social workers, parenting education classes and support groups, legal service referrals and early intervention services for young children.  


Big day. Big Support. Big thanks!
Sep 27, 2023

Our most exciting Georgia State Day yet is in the books. Big, big thanks to everyone who gave and contributed to making Georgia State Day a big success.

You helped us exceed our goal of 2,000 gifts and raise more than $600,000 in support of Panther opportunity. You've uplifted students, given them options and opened doors for them. We can't thank you enough.

However, there is still nearly $175,000 in giving challenges to unlock, so we're leaving open until midnight. 

If you would, please visit the challenge page and help us unlock these funds for programs that help Panthers succeed. Also, please spread the word throughout your social networks so we can transform these challenges into student support.  

Thanks for everything this Georgia State Day. Stay tuned...
