Our Mission and Program History

Building healthy communities since 2016

Our Mission: 

Family Kickstart Georgia (FKSG) exists to promote full and healthy family functioning within the society by empowering and meaningfully engaging families in literacy programs, basic health programs, youth programs, especially with youth “at-risk” of transitioning into adulthood successfully.


In 2016, Family Kickstart Georgia, in collaboration with partners, began to address emerging community needs to create innovative programs tailored towards minimizing dependency and promoting self-sufficiency within the community. The review of our mission, mandate and organization capacity during our planning provided the framework and clear boundaries in making strategic decisions and in responding promptly and realistically to the dynamic nonprofit environment.

Our strategic priorities were established listening to the community and are focused on helping women and youth families within the community. Family Kickstart Georgia (FKSG) operates on Big Aunty/Big Uncle model becoming a listening ear, friend, and voice to vulnerable women, youth and families.

One such decision agreed upon during the planning was the need to implement an in-school mentoring program in meeting with FKSG’s mission of delivering holistic services to our clients. It provided us the platform for evaluating our program capacity and program readiness
