UGA Cooperative Extension Services and Douglas CORE relocated their offices to 6279 Fairburn Road in Douglasville over the summer and made the move official with a Douglas County Chamber ribbon cutting on Sept. 21.

UGA Cooperative Extension in Douglas County reaches the citizens of the county with education and resources from UGA. Their programs include, gardening, water quality and conservation, 4-H  youth development, family budgeting, Better Brains for Babies, food preservation, lawn and homeowner issues and other aspects of agriculture and family and consumer sciences.

Douglas CORE is the recognized Family Connection collaborative for Douglas County with the mission to improve the well-being of the community, including support for producing both self-sufficient adults, and strong, healthy, educated families.

Chairman Tom Worthan was present at the ribbon cutting as well as Commissioners Ann Jones-Guider, and Mike Mulcare. “This building has undergone major renovations and repairs over the past few months turning it into a wonderful home for the resources our community needs,” commented Worthan. “The care and detail taken to construct this facility has not gone un-noticed. It is wonderful to see a building be recycled in our community for the betterment of everyone in Douglas County.”
