The Augusta Partnership for Children, Inc. originated in 1985, as the Augusta Coalition for Children and Youth (ACCY). The ACCY was an advocacy group consisting of the medical community, legal community, social workers, dental and health workers and concerned citizens determined to do something to support the needs of children who were victims of abuse.
Their efforts supported establishment of a shelter for abused children. This group did not have a staff nor did they provide direct services. However, the ACCY identified the needs of children and brought people together who could potentially meet those needs. They also created a collective vision in regard to our children and youth.
