THE ATHENS WELLBEING PROJECT
The Athens Wellbeing Project (AWP) is an unprecedented collaboration among several Athens-Clarke County area Institutional Partners and Community Stakeholders.
Institutional Partners are primary funders providing financial assistance as well as organizational and operational support to the project. These partners include the Athens Area Community Foundation, Athens-Clarke County Unified Government, ACC Department of Housing and Community Development, ACC Police Department, Clarke County School District, Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center, St. Mary’s Health Care System, the Athens Housing Authority and the University of Georgia
Community Stakeholders are project sponsors providing strategic support and leadership to AWP, these stakeholders include Family Connection-Communities in Schools, Envision Athens and the United Way of Northeast Georgia.
Our mission is to empower the Athens community with meaningful data that will lead to more informed decision-making, improvements in service delivery, and greater quality of life for our citizens.
The AWP is accomplishing this mission through the collection and analysis of:
1) Representative datasets of Athens-Clarke County households surveyed at the neighborhood-level in Fall 2016 and Fall 2018.
2) Secondary data collected and analyzed at varying levels of geographic specification, (e.g. U.S. Census American Community Survey, ACCPD crime statistics, Clarke County School District Data).
