Clay Safetynet June 2023

Join us next Thursday at Mercy Support Services for a special update from Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook regarding the overall quality of life indicators and crime status of the County!

Thanks to everyone that submitted questions for the Sheriff at our May meeting, we will be sure to highlight these first during Q&A. In addition, next week will collect questions and concerns for Superintendent David Broskie in preparation for our July meeting. We hope you can be there to share your thoughts in advance of the presentation!

Our Vision

Clay SafetyNet Vision - Expand the platform of committed social service partners among faith-based, nonprofit, for-profit and local government organizations, regularly networking together to share resources, avoid duplication and create partnerships, in order to find solutions and improve services within Clay County.


Intentionally making attendance of the monthly networking meeting a priority in oder to connect with stakeholders who perform social services in Clay County, such as local government agencies, nonprofit organizations and faith-based groups.


Where can information be found with regard to the social services and resources to help people in crisis in a county? A person/family in crisis most often have a basket full of needs. In order to guide that person/family to self-sufficiency, a thorough knowledge of a county's resources is needed. Consistent communication is needed to gain a thorough knowledge of a county's resources.


The needs within any community are far too great for any one organization to deal with. In order to remove the underlying causes of poverty and dependency on social services, local government agencies, nonprofit organizations and faith-based groups need to collaborate together to avoid duplication of services, establish productive partnerships and complementing services.
