We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Parent Advisory Council to work with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and, specifically, the Prevention andCommunity Support Section (PCS).  

The role of the Georgia Parent Advisory Council (GAPAC) is to advise DFCS and PCS about making changes to child welfare services and systems, particularly prevention programming. The GAPAC is a sounding board for decisions, ideas and questions that shape the future of the Prevention and Community Support Section and the Division. 

Parental involvement in decision-making is the key to having policies and programs that support families' strengths and needs. The GAPAC is designed to ensure there are strong parent voices in shaping programs, services and strategies that result in better outcomes for children and families.
