Southeast Georgia Friends of Fort Stewart and Hunter (SEGAFFSH), is a non-profit organization, originally incorporated in 1999. It is dedicated to enhancing the overall economic value of Fort Stewart and the communities surrounding Fort Stewart through a progressive regional relationship amongst the partners. Partners include the military community, local governments/agencies, businesses and individuals.
There can be no doubt that Fort Stewart is a major economic engine in the region. At last review by Georgia Southern University, the annual expenditures of Fort Stewart and several tiers down the economic ladder, stood at $2.9B per annum. That is correct billions per year! That estimate was done a while ago and the latest estimate is over $5.6B.
SEGAFFSH is looking for investors/partners in the future of the region and a pledge of support for installation sustainability with a focus on quality of life issues. It is important for all in the region to make having a military installation an integral part of the community. Examples of issues that need attention are education, health care, housing, child care, transportation, etc. and this is where our focus will be.
SEGAFFSH welcomes an opportunity to present to you or any group you are involved with the WHY we believe there is need to support a combined approach. Additionally, we can discuss who is engaged in the effort, how the group intends to proceed and what results are expected.
