State of Community: Carroll & Beyond
Thursday, February 21, 2019
7:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon
University of West Georgia in the Campus Center

The University of West Georgia's College of Social Sciences presents its annual State of Community 2019 breakfast highlighting current findings and trends affecting the state of community in Carroll County and beyond.

State of Community 2019 examines the basic human needs of food, shelter and clothing for the West Georgia area, including Carroll, Coweta, Haralson, Heard, and Troup Counties. Members of our communities need secure access to all three. Resources exist to help provide access to these, yet many in in the West Georgia community still have unmet food, shelter and clothing needs. Individuals, agencies, businesses and nonprofits across the region are invited to engage in conversations and working groups to discuss barriers and opportunities to securing access to these basic human needs at the morning event on Thursday, February 21, 2019.
