Charity Tracker helps nonprofits assist those in need, maximize resources

Are the clients self-identifying as receiving services from Advantage? It would be a major violation of confidentiality if everyone who receives services from ABH is automatically put into the system...

Athens man indicted for binding, strangling woman during alleged rape

Ideas:
1. Start teaching ALL children appropriate boundaries by our actions and our words.
2. Stop making violence look like fun--video games etc@E.J.:
3. When children are abused, believe them and insist that they get help.
4. When you notice controlling behavior, talk about and seek help if needed.
5. Model healthy non-violent, controlling relationships.

These are just a few ideas....

Let's teach the guys not to rape instead of expecting women to stay away from "the wrong kind of guys."

UGA OKs 'soft benefits' for domestic partners; needs 'further study' for full health care

Oh yay! Soft benefits!! So pretty much all this work was done, lots of people supported benefits for domestic partners, most of our peer institutions are already doing this, UGA could have done this for minimal cost (as per a previous article), yet we STILL won't offer benefits to domestic partners??? Awesome.

Woman unnerved by sex offender in Athens park

Smart woman! 8 male roommates was a great response. I'm glad she got away and trusted her instincts.

Kaiser's time in Athens shows with medical campus, community support

They need to include mental health providers in their Athens location. People have to drive almost an hour to access mental health providers if on Kaiser and wish to use their health insurance to pay for therapy or psychiatric care.

DHS commissioner: Child care agency needs staff

Qualified workers are quick to leave DFCS because the workers often can't see the good that they are doing. In addition, the standards are constantly changing which makes it hard to retain quality workers. There are some pretty terrible supervisors which can add to the stress.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
