SW GA Regional Commission- "Call-In to Connect" program

The Southwest Ga Regional Commission’s Regional Plan addresses housing issues in Southwest Georgia. The Regional Collaborative was created from the Short Term Work Program to help assist with one of the identified weaknesses of poor credit. The Regional Collaborative is a group of housing counselors who address this issue.

“Call-In to Connect” is a Regional Telethon-style event that is open to anyone in the Southwest Georgia region who has any housing issue. It is a day filled with HUD certified counselors answering the phones and providing information to those who may need it. They are armed with the Southwest Georgia Regional Housing Resource guide to point people in the correct direction if they have needs other than just housing. This effort pulls together public and private agencies to make a difference in the lives of those that are facing housing issues.

The Southwest Georgia Call-In To Connect event was held in October 2014 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. The SW Georgia Regional Collaborative and Georgia DCA, along with other collaborative partners from throughout the region, took part in the event. It was marketed by the Southwest Georgia Regional Collaborative through regional email lists, mailings to regional churches, advertisements in three local papers, social media, regional groups and distributed in the form of press releases to thirty two (32) local and regional media markets in the 14 county service area. Regions 8 and 11 in Southwest Georgia were targeted for this event.
