HEARTS for Families Logo  “HEARTS for Families: Region 1”

HEARTS for Families, Inc. is dedicated to the prevention of underage drinking through the Implementation of strategies specific to communities throughout the state of Georgia.
HEARTS has Region 1 programs in Toccoa and Lavonia for middle school youth. The All Stars program is an interactive program designed to help youth understand the importance of choices and to help parents become more involved with their youth. HEARTS is kicking off two programs in February and will continue through April. A positive messaging campaign is currently underway in Franklin County and in Stephens County middle schools. In addition, HEARTS is working diligently garnering community support for getting a Social Host Ordinance passed in each community. A Social Host Ordinance will hold adults accountable for giving alcohol to youth.
HEARTS Region 1 workgroups meet monthly in each community - STEP Up Toccoa and STEP Up Lavonia/ Carnesville.
In Region 1, Carmen Westbrook, Project Coordinator, can be reached at Visit to get involved and sign up for their newsletter!
