RIVERDALE – The 2018 Leadership Clayton Class has developed ONEClayton, a community resource guide to give residents access to local resources, programs and services focused on supporting a healthy, successful life all in one place.
The website offers nearly 200 resources for Clayton residents in the areas of:
• Career and Employment
• Child Welfare
• Crisis Intervention and Safety
• Food and Clothing
• Health Care
• Health Insurance
The website resource guide is available at www.oneclayton.wixsite.com/oneclaytonresources. In addition, the site can be downloaded to mobile devices through Google Play and iTunes. The website is continually updated with vetted resources to offer the most current listing possible.
In addition to being a resource that individuals can access directly, OCCRG serves as a resource for such organizations as Department of Family and Children Services, community leaders, police, EMS, community program managers and the like. Presentations of the website and app were made to the Clayton County Commissioners and the Association of Christian Ministers of Clayton County to spread the word to as many Clayton County residents as possible.
As an effort to continually provide the citizens of Clayton County with a one-stop location for services they may need, a survey to help increase the list of resources is available. To take the survey visit the ONEClayton website and click the survey link.
The site was developed as a team project by 2018 Leadership Clayton Class members:
Eric Bell; Faye Evans; Kimberly Golden-Benner; Judy Mapp; Michael Montgomery; Chantara Rumph-Carter; and Judge Marcus Thorpe. A community collaborative effort, the website was created with support and guidance from Clayton County Chamber of Commerce; Clayton County Library System; John Brinson, Clayton Collaborative Authority; and State Rep. Rhonda Burnough, the team’s lead adviser.
