Vibrant communities where everyone can achieve their potential
Removing barriers to ensure that every person — no matter their race, past mistakes, or the circumstances of their birth — has access to a quality education, fulfilling work, and a healthy family life.
BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS
To ensure that every person no matter their race, past mistakes, or circumstances of their birth has access to a quality education, fulfilling work, and a healthy family life.
WHAT WE DO
The Georgia Center for Opportunity brings together the solutions that lift people from poverty. Our desire is that each person be given the opportunity to achieve their potential.
HOW WE DO IT
We develop RESEARCH & ANALYSIS because many policies, even if well intentioned, often hinder opportunity.
We develop PARTNERSHIPS because addressing poverty isn’t a solo endeavor. It requires cooperation from people who can meet needs where it matters most — in neighborhoods and communities.
We develop SYSTEMS because sometimes would-be partners lack the tools to work together to address the challenges people face in moving from dependency to self-sufficiency.
