Cobb Collaborative Impact Reports

Cobb Collaborative Community

The MISSION of Cobb Collaborative is "Engaging, Educating and Empowering the community to improve the well-being of children and families." Improving the lives of everyone in a community is a daunting and complex challenge. That’s why the Cobb Collaborative focuses on three specific areas for the widest impact: mental health, literacy and civic engagement. By empowering local organizations and citizens in these key initiatives, we’re able to help create leverage toward better outcomes for kids and families. That’s what we’ve been doing for more than 30 years all across Cobb County. We know that we’re stronger together and we hope to be the bridge that connects our collective efforts.

What an incredible year! New partners. Stronger collaboration. More people reached. Additional staff. Strengthened relationships. Increased membership. And none of this happens without our amazing stakeholders - board members, volunteers, nonprofit leaders, community leaders, donors, funders, strategy team members and more - who come together to improve outcomes for children and families in Cobb County.

As you read this Impact Report and see our numbers, keep in mind that our work is also ultimately about people. Our neighbors. Our children. Our friends. Our community. Which is why we have even bigger plans for 2023 and beyond.

Thank you for your support and let's get to work - together!
