Who We Are:
The Morgan County Family Connection is a partnership of over 15 local organizations working with families to research the needs of children and families in our community, and to work together to address those needs. Controlled at the community level, it is our commitment to improve results for children and families.
Our Over-Arching Goal: All Families Self Sufficient & All Children Succeed in School and Life:
We pursue that goal by addressing the root causes of problems and committing to a long-term process of planning, implementation, and evaluation. Using a family-centered approach, our community partners work together with families, focusing on academics, physical and mental health, nurturing parenting, economic success, and community service. We tap existing resources, streamline systems to be more efficient and effective, and initiate new projects like those listed below.
A Few of Our Organizational Partners:
Department of Family & Children Services, Public Health, Action Ministries, Inc., Department of Juvenile Justice, Chamber of Commerce, Individual businesses, Morgan County Ministers Union, Harvest of the Heart Garden, Morgan County School System, ACTION, Inc., Community Connection 211, Boys & Girls Club, FERST Foundation, Headstart/Early Headstart, Morgan Memorial Hospital, Morgan County Extension Office – 4H Program and many others.
Our most important partners are the families whose children we are serving.
Projects Initiated Through This Process Include:
- Mentoring One Morgan
- Morgan System of Care
- Nurturing Skills for Families

Our success is our partners’ success – we bring them together, they develop and implement the strategies. Our most important partners are the families whose children are being served.

All families in Morgan County will be strong and self sufficient & all children will be healthy, ready for and succeeding in school & life.
