Clay County

Thanks to a grant, Clay County Department of Social Services (DSS), in partnership with the Community Child Protection Team, engaged a diverse group of community stakeholders to develop a plan to support families and children.

The Community Prevention Action Plan is under construction.

Clay County plans to prevent child maltreatment:

  1. Change social norms around asking for help
  2. Promote child well-being
  3. Maximize adult well-being
  4. Build a safe, stable, nurturing community

Stakeholders involved:

Clay County DSS, Clay County Health Department, Clay County Schools, Clay County Sheriff’s Department, parents, and more.

Before you go, please consider giving the gift of safe childhoods. 


 All children deserve to grow up in safe and nurturing environments.

 TOGETHER, we CAN Prevent Child Abuse, NC!
