Southeast Georgia Rural Community Network (SGRCN).The SGRCN was formed January 27, 2014 and was incorporated June, 2014; the Network received 501(c) 3 status December, 2014. The service area includes Montgomery, Toombs, Treutlen counties and surrounding rural areas.
The original goal of the network project was to create the Southeast Georgia Rural Healthcare Collaborative (SGRHC), an interdisciplinary Rural Health Network of community agencies. The SGRHC will improve coordination of quality care to uninsured and underinsured rural residents of Montgomery, Treutlen and Toombs Counties of Southeast Georgia. The Network also seeks to improve opportunities for families to make healthy choices by reducing barriers and providing education, activities and resources for affordable wellness choices. Since health outcomes are impacted by multiple physical, social, economic and environmental factors, network members decided to make a formal name change to the Southeast Georgia Rural Community Network, Inc. (SGRCN). The network is sustained by in-kind donations through network member support. The SGRCN meets annually to discuss partnership activities and ongoing community needs, as well as funding opportunities
