Inform Georgia (formerly GAIRS)



Georgia AIRS is a regional affiliate (chapter) of the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS), the only professional association dedicated to the field of information and referral. 


Information and Referral (I&R) is the art, science, and practice of bringing people and services together. When people have questions or need help to find critical services such as financial assistance, food, shelter, child care, jobs, or mental health support, they turn to the members of Georgia AIRS (GAIRS) to receive information on community, social, and health services. Our member agencies create and maintain databases of programs and services and then disseminate that information through a variety of channels including telephone, computer and mobile devices, and in person. The assistance they provide is free, fast, convenient, and courteous.



GAIRS membership is mostly comprised of Area Agencies on Aging and United Way Agencies but we welcome anyone with an interest I&R.



GAIRS meets quarterly and holds a training/education session at each quarterly meeting. Our Board meets face-to-face at least once per year and several times as needed by telephone. Meetings are held at the Vineville United Methodist Church in Macon, Georgia.


We encourage all individuals and organizations dedicated to providing quality I&R services in Georgia to join us!
