Clay County Collaborative Successful Partnerships building Successful Families


The work group has identified two priority areas to research in the 2006/07 fiscal year:  recovery schools and juvenile drug courts.  They will work to develop a collaborative response to these priority needs in addition to discussing ways to address substance abuse, including meth, and its impact on children and youth.

Membership includes representatives from the County, its cities, and interested non-profit partners, and is open to parents.
