Important Note: Georgia Cares requires a Georgia Cares Release of Information/Consent Form signed by the legal guardian for each youth that we serve. This form is needed prior to Georgia Cares engaging in services with the youth. The Release of Information/Consent Form allows us to work with and access records from the youth, their family, and other applicable partners. This form should be submitted when submitting the referral.

If you are unable to get the release of information signed at the time of referral, please refer to these FORMS. You may complete these seperately, but please note that services will not be provided until the signed release of information is received by Georgia Cares.
