Partnerships & Affairs


The Office of Partnerships and External Affairs is designed to work with community partners including nonprofits, community foundations, educational institutions, corporations, internal county departments, DeKalb cities as well as healthcare organizations in collaboration with common goals and practices.

The focus is to develop, cultivate and establish relationships to achieve overall Human Services goals and to ultimately work to improve the quality of life for all DeKalb citizens.  Partnerships allow us to do more, with more resources, to meet the needs of our community.

A few programs include:

  • Creating Intergenerational programs
  • Improving Food insecurity
  • Creating a Dementia Friendly County
  • Educating Older Adults on Home Repair Programs
