Fulton County Aging & Youth Services Asks for the Community’s Input

As part of the strategic planning process, the Fulton County Aging & Youth Services Department (AYSD) is hosting 7 Town Hall meetings to launch the department’s five-year strategic plan.   The input gathered from citizens, community partners, and non-profit organizations will help shape the programs implements to serve children, youth, and seniors throughout Fulton County.  

The issues identified during the initial Strategic Planning Forums which are now a part of the department’s five-year plan include:
  1. Increase program capacity to effectively address the social and health needs of the most vulnerable and at risk children, youth, and seniors  
  2. Improve relationships across generations
  3. Establish and maintain a culture of quality customer service that includes integrity and transparency
  4. Create and strengthen partnerships to implement innovative practices
  5. Promote preparation for a productive and healthy future
The central focus of the plan is to establish two frameworks, ‘Cradle-to-Career’ (focusing on programming for young people in Fulton County) and ‘Career-to-Golden Years’ (focusing on issues facing our population of seniors).     These two frameworks emphasize improved collaboration and coordination of services for Fulton County citizens.   The seven meetings are scheduled throughout the county next week:
