Diversity, Equity, Accessibility,
and Inclusion (DEAI) Statement

At Family Promise of Cobb County, we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, equity is prioritized, accessibility is ensured, and inclusion is embraced. We believe that every individual and family, regardless of their background or circumstances, deserves to be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.


Our Commitment to Diversity

We value and respect the diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences of all individuals. Our organization welcomes people of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, and socioeconomic statuses. We strive to create a community that reflects and celebrates this diversity, understanding that it is a source of strength and innovation.

Promoting Equity

Equity is at the core of our mission. We recognize that systemic barriers and disparities exist and are committed to actively addressing and dismantling them. We ensure that our programs and services are designed to provide equal opportunities for all families, especially those who have been historically marginalized or underserved. Our goal is to level the playing field so that every family has the resources and support they need to thrive.

Ensuring Accessibility

We are dedicated to making our services and resources accessible to everyone. This means not only removing physical barriers but also ensuring that our programs are financially, culturally, and linguistically accessible. We continually evaluate and improve our practices to ensure that all families can fully participate in and benefit from our services.

Embracing Inclusion

Inclusion means creating an environment where everyone feels welcome, valued, and supported. We actively seek to involve diverse voices in our decision-making processes and program development. By fostering a culture of inclusion, we ensure that our organization is responsive to the needs of the community we serve and that everyone has a seat at the table.


Our Ongoing Efforts

We understand that DEAI is a continuous journey, not a destination. We are committed to ongoing learning, self-reflection, and improvement. We regularly seek feedback from the families we serve, our staff, volunteers, and community partners to better understand and address their needs and concerns. We also provide ongoing DEAI training and development opportunities for our team to ensure that we are all equipped to uphold these values in our daily work.

Together, we can create a more just and equitable community where every family has the opportunity to achieve lasting independence and success.
