In DeKalb County there are 54,000 children, in poor performing schools.


For adults with less than a High School diploma:

Their unemployment rate is twice the national average.

23% have no health insurance.

26% are obese.

18% have poorly managed hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.

13% of their children have asthma.


The lifetime income of an adult with a high school diploma is $350,000 greater than an adult who has not achieved the equivalent. Add a college degree and the difference increases to $1.5 million.


IF A CHILD CANNOT READ AT GRADE LEVEL BY 3RD GRADE,

HE/SHE HAS A GREATER CHANCE OF GOING TO JAIL

THAN GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL.

WFG Equity

Arising out of a 50-year old foundation focused on health and education, WFG Equity is a consulting practice for public, private, academic and non-profit institutions interested in understanding and employing equity strategies to reduce and eliminate disparities in health, education and community well-being. This is accomplished through creating an interdisciplinary organization of community practitioners, researchers, business and thought leaders to develop and implement effective, innovative and strategic interventions at the state and local level and by identifying the most successful equity promoting practices in the US and the world. We elevate them to the level of research where they can be translated, evaluated and replicated.

Examples of our work include community interventions that reduce emergency room visits and lower healthcare costs; improve educational performance through school-based health centers; increase family stability through incentivized life skills training and financial literacy.
