Douglas County CORE, which stands for Community Organizing Resources for Excellence, and the Douglas County Cooperative Extension Service celebrated a move last week from the Douglas County Courthouse to new, more spacious accommodations in the old Douglasville hospital facility at 6279 Fairburn Road. The building is home to Douglas Senior Services and was previously the home to Douglas County United Way. 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 self-sufficient adults and strong, healthy, educated families. The nonprofit holds a monthly forum on the second Tuesday of each month at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Lithia Springs, and is open to the public.
