Our mission is that every child in Union County will grow up to become a successful, productive and contributing adult. Began in 1991, by Governor Zell Miller, Family Connection began as a pilot program to coordinate services for the educational, social, economic, and physical well-being of Georgia’s children.


A huge thanks to everyone who came out last week for our Family Packing Night! We hope everyone has a wonderful summer!


Shout out to Owen Glen subdivision for once again providing food for our food pantry. Thank you for giving back to your community!


To say this week has been a blessing is an understatement! We have been able to give 32 cases of baby formula to families in need.

We have been gifted 12 more FREE bottles of Baby Formula for families in need.

Please stop by the shoppe and pick up what you need to feed your babies.💜🥰

Narcan training is tomorrow evening at 5 PM.

Training will be conducted at Positive Pathways, 243 Hunt Martin St. Blairsville, GA.

Narcan can be obtained at Positive Pathways Monday-Friday 2-5 PM.

Hope to see you all there!


If you or someone you know have been effected by the formula shortage, please visit https://www.hhs.gov/formula

The website allows you to search for available formula in your area, fill out an emergency request form for Abbott, and call Gerber’s hotline to speak with a nutritionist or lactation consultant who can help you identify a similar and more readily available formula. There are also resources for WIC recipients, and information on local organizations that have formula and donor milk available.

Make sure you share, you never know who will need this.
