The Cobb Marietta Early Learning Initiative seeks to be a resource for parents and caregivers of children from birth through kindergarten and connect service providers who work in this space by sharing programming information, best practices, ideas, and more. Specifically, this group focuses on improving language, nutrition, and identifying local resources that encourage children’s healthy development and overall family well-being. Join us to learn more about resources in Cobb County that are available to empower caregivers and supporters of children.



Our purpose is to improve access to and awareness of resources for individuals experiencing homelessness in Cobb County. There are many organizations serving the homeless population in Cobb County. This strategy team allows members to share best practices for increasing awareness of services, connecting clients to resources, and advocating as a unified group for change on behalf of the individuals experiencing homelessness.


Veterans Strategy Team (VST) convenes organizations that serve veterans and their families in our community. Cobb County is home to an estimated 50,000 veterans and the needs veterans have and the challenges they face are diverse. The VST was created to address the challenges faced by Veterans who struggle to get services that they need and deserve. The VST is not designed to duplicate any services that veterans deserve and need; rather, the focus is to be a conduit to help guide veterans to the service agencies that can best help them.
