Each one of us that works, lives, and plays in our community hopefully enjoys a healthy and resilient life. The West Georgia Prevention & Advocacy Resource Center, Inc. (PARC) is pleased to announce their newest program, Project Resilience, with the theme of “Promoting a Healthy & Resilient Carroll County.” PARC’s director Rob Dial adds, “Our goal is to have everyone willing to participate in this coordinated effort to promote our community’s health and safety.” 

The first step is gathering thoughts of all people above 18 years of age who live or work in Carroll County. Along with their partners at the Carroll County Child Advocacy Center, Carroll County Mental Health Advocates, Carroll County Family Connections, and the West Georgia Domestic Violence Shelter, PARC invites you to share your thoughts by taking part in a simple 10-minute survey.

Rob continues, “We will use the community’s thoughts and responses to direct the efforts of the Project Resilience Taskforce to identify community-level strategies that support community health and safety by reducing sexual violence.” In the coming weeks the community will be invited to participate in focus groups to discuss these opportunities in more detail. 

Each person will be entered into a drawing for 10 $50.00 Visa gift cards as a thank you for participating and your time. Rob emphasizes, “Please know that any identifying information such as email address or contact information will be kept confidential and used only to notify the winners of the drawings.
