Our Successes

The Augusta Partnership for Children, Inc. has achieved many successes throughout its 33 years of existence to include fostering systems change, creating and introducing the Family Self-Sufficiency Initiative and leveraging dollars within the Augusta-Richmond County community to name a few. Our success continues and we couldn’t achieve such success without the help of our partners and supporters.

Below are a few of our success from the 2017-2018 year in review.
