Who We Are:

With funds left in the will of local philanthropist, Adeline Graham and the support of Rev. Ralph Mark Gilbert of the First African Baptist Church, Greenbriar was established in 1949 by members of Gamma Sigma Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., as an orphanage for African-American children in Savannah and surrounding areas. Prior to this time, African-American children who were homeless or without parental support were placed in local work farms and penal institutions.  Today, Greenbriar serves children and families of all backgrounds and ethnicities, through our many programs.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to provide services which lead to the healthy development of children and the strengthening of families. We provide childcare, accredited and affordable early learning programs (including Georgia-PreK), family preservation and counseling services as well as an emergency shelter for children and young adults. Greenbriar also operates over 70 Project Safe Place sites in the Savannah area.

We are accredited by the Council of Accreditation for Children and Family Services.  We are also Georgia Quality-Rated for our early learning programs.

Our Vision:

Our Vision is to ensure that every child and family we serve will experience a healthy, nurturing environment.

Our Core Values:

Our actions are molded by a set of shared core values that are the foundation of our success. These values are:

Nurturing: We provide the loving environment that gives our children the safe, nurturing environment that best supports their social, emotional and cognitive development.

Advocacy: WE are fierce advocates for the health, safety and well-being of the children in our care.

Commitment: We are totally committed to the well-being and healthy development of our children.

Passion: We are passionate about what we do and the positive impact we can have on the children and families we serve.

Integrity: We consistently seek to do the right thing and to conduct ourselves in an honest and moral manner.

If it weren't for the support and guidance of Greenbriar children's center, I would not have my family back.  I owe them all the gratitude in the world.
