A Brief History

Forsyth Futures aims to provide an objective view of information regarding Forsyth County. Although it has existed for decades, the name Forsyth Futures evolved from the work of the Leadership Roundtable, a group of leaders from agencies focused on improving the quality of life and futures of children and families of Forsyth County, North Carolina. In 2006, Forsyth Futures formally became the name of the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization previously known as the Forsyth County Council of Children and Families, which emerged from the work of the early Juvenile Justice Council (est. 1975). Through data-based analyses and research studies, Forsyth Futures’ team of experts seeks to understand topics such as the strength of our school system, the quality and equity of health care, and economic indicators like housing and transportation.
