As chairwoman for the Georgia’s Children’s Cabinet, First Lady Deal will be highlighting the work of Cabinet Agencies throughout the year. The Georgia’s Children’s Cabinet is a collaborative team working to eliminate gaps and to ensure the state will achieve the Governor’s goals of ensuring that our children and families are educated, healthy, safe, and growing.
First Lady Deal launched the Governor’s Office for Children and Families’ Great Start Georgia (GSG) initiative on January 7, 2013. This initiative creates a statewide home visiting infrastructure that promotes a community culture of care and support for all families before and after the birth of a child. Throughout the month the First Lady will visit sites that promote the use of best practices and community supports to ensure every family is equipped to lead a healthy productive life.
